1299 Exhaust Finish Issues

Hi all, I was wondering if anyone had issues with the black matte finish on their 1299 stock exhaust cans. Mine are started to fade and chip, and I can actually see a gold finish that's underneath that is starting to show through. Does anyone have this problem? I am thinking of sanding off the black finish - has anyone done this or otherwise refinished their stock exhaust cans?

Thanks,

Paul

If your tacking the can off you may as well have it bead blasted and ceramic coated
Ceracoat gives a great finish very durable and can take heat.

Make sure if yiu do it's not the powder used in firearms as the temperature ratings are not suitable

How many kms / miles have you done?
Mine still looks fine, but I have seen one with the gold finish appearing, not sure if the gold is some sort of coating to facilitate the black finish or if is heat discoloration. I have cut a set open though and it is stainless steel.

I have a 2017 S with only 3700 kms on it. The gold is showing through on one side and I have a chip on the other side I covered up with header paint, but it was a solid gold finish under the black matte.

Yes The exhaust finish is shit. I had these replaced twice under warranty. Finally have an aftermarket can now. Repaint it or replace it. They're an outsourced exhaust anyway
