Having done a bit of Googling, it seems like getting the exhaust tips rechromed might be really expensive, so it's possibly cheaper and easier just to get new ones. Could I ask where you've had yours done? Might be worth mailing them to that place if it works out OK. Did you do all the cleaning/sanding before sending them, or just send them as is for that price?Dropped them off at a place today to get them rechromed for $35/tip. Seems like a good deal as compared to buying more expensive OEM tips that will just have the same problem. Supposedly, the plating will be more durable than OEM.
This is gloss black. I n my opinion it looks better than chrome or matte black. I had matte black before.
This looks great. I wasn't a fan of black tips originally but now they are definitely growing on my. The RS3 looks good with black tips...I think since we have a black diffusor it matches well. I agree that gloss black looks better than matte.This is gloss black. I n my opinion it looks better than chrome or matte black. I had matte black before.
I used the primer and paint pictured below. Three primer layers then three paint layers then baked it in oven for 15 min. Looks and feel OEM.
