First off congrats! Secondly welcome . Maybe it's the other way around ? Either way, glad you're here and found a great ride. That being said we don't believe anyone until they post a picture of their car

This is a great place where you find lot's of information and ideas which will probably cost you more $$$ Keeping the Mrs. happy is the right way to go though...

For all practical purposes, the Tip's are very durable, almost indestructable. Not that a highly motivated person couldn't do something stupid to make one blow up.
