I would try to get them extended past the bottom lip of the bumper. Seems like a lot of exhaust gases would stay under the car with them stopping short like that. I think if the bumper didn't have that transition (half lip, half no lip) at the bottom, right where the exhaust pipe is, it would be easier to cut the bumper cover and make it look right. The way it is now, I don't see it looking right. It would be nice, if the exhaust pipe could be moved closer to the inside toward the middle of the car, so you could just cut the lip, and it would come out better. I haven't tried it, but the way the exhaust is made, I doubt it's possible.
