My '06 Aero came with black exhaust tips, no not from carbon build up, and many of the pics I see of others cars come with bright silver/chrome exahust tips.

Any reason why some got black and others got silver/chrome tips?

Love to hear what others have as well so post it up!

I'm going to say chrome with black on the inside... they actually shine up nicely, in and out with some chrome cleaner.

Well, I now know they are polished stainless on the oustide with some sort of black coating on the inner.

I think they oversprayed the black on mine.

With a lot of elbow grease, I was able to get them to polish up nicely with some caustic Blue Coral metal polish. I'm gonne have to get a rotary polisher bit and go at the insides a bit more but I was able to get a majority of the black coating off including the inner.

Sexy!
