I think a lot of this depends on the color of the vehicle. I, personally, like the black one:

I would say it depends on the "Theme" of the car. As an example, I would not get black tips on a black car, unless you are blacking out everything...it would just blend in too much. Titanium Blue is a matter of taste, some like it, some don't. Chrome looks too close stock tips, if I am going to pay for a aftermarket exhaust, I want different tips, and I am not a big fan of Chrome personally. Carbon looks good, although it would should be consistent with the rest of the car. Polished looks clean simple, with a aftermarket flare. But as with anything like this....to each their own.

I always prefer unpainted metal. be it polished, chrome or brushed. the akra tips are my favorite, but Eisenmann tips are a close second.

the "polished" in your pictures doesn't look polished to me, btw.
