Personally I think the standard tips on the Leon Cupra look a little bit weedy and could do with beefing up. I'm not really looking to change the whole system, because a) I don't want it to really be any louder (perhaps "boomy") and b) I don't want to spend all that money!

Does anyone know if there are any good Audi RS (i.e. oval) style exhaust tips that can replace the factory fit ones? Is it even possible to just replace only the tips?

I've seen these ones and they look very tasty in my opinion:

A few people have chopped the tips and replaced them. Just need to be careful the new ones aren’t to long and you car ends up looking like a wheel barrow.

However on the 5 doors system I think you have room to play with.

Had a custom cat-back exhaust fitted by EMP Performance in St Albans.

Very good service and workmanship. Comes with a lifetime guarantee too. My only complaint is that at certain mid-range RPMs (approx 3000), it's a little "boomy". Below and above this, it's definitely more fruity.

I'll be taking it back at some point to get some anti-drone pipes fitted which should help (as shown in image below):

On a related note, the standard diffuser does look a bit small now, so hoping to swap it out for a Rieger item soon. Will share images when done.

Nice, looks like you swapped out the tail lights for the facelift ones? Easy to do? Mine are starting to mist up so probably a matter of time before they conk out.

Got the Rieger diffuser fitted by Chiltern Bodyshop in Bedford. Really happy with the work and with the look. Kind of looks OEM+, menacing but subtle. Got the unpainted one and they matched it with the grey plastic around the numberplate. Thought that the gloss black one, while very nice, might have looked a bit out of place.

Nope.
They're prefacelift ones just with the clear bits covered with transparent red vinyl.
