Recommendations for exhaust end cap...?

Howdy, I was wondering if someone could recommend and post some links for nice aluminum end caps to top off the inexpensive exhaust mod. I'm normally fairly decent at google-ing these types of items but I'm away from my computer for a few days and coming up with nothing on the phone. Thanks!

If you have the stock muffler with the tweeter removed then you can try one of these:

I bought the blue end cap since it matched my blue 08. Well after the first trip up the hiway it was black. All the blue burnt off so just a word of advice if ya want a nice colored one, don't waste your money. It's nice and flat black now all on its own after 30 miles

Yes I have heard that...most recommend the aluminum one and use bbq paint to make it black, but for $23 it is a fraction of the cost of a slip-on...
