    The chrome tips on my car has the chrome fading away and looks like copper in spots. Wondering what the best option is to make them look good again. thinking of having the 2 back sections ceramic coated. Not sure if borla just sells the tailpipe/tips.

    Call Borla and get them replaced. That's why they have the "Million Mile" warranty.

    Send them to a chrome shop. California chrome is one example.

    It's disappointing an exhaust that costs that much would have chrome plated junk tips instead of polished stainless. Dumps those tips and get some of these Welcome to Stainless Steel Systems | Products

    I had the same problem as you.

    Those look pretty good. Did you just cut yours off and use the slip fit so no welding needed?.

    That's what I did originally ,but I eventually had them welded on because I caught someone trying to steal them.. :shrug:

    I had the same problem. I called up Borla and bought replacement tips from them @$75 each. I went to my local muffler shop and had them installed. When I talked with Borla, they said it was a special order part number, and not available on their website.

    The borla tips are to short and look funny from the side view IMO .
