Satin Black exhaust tips are just SEXY!!

I had the Bastuck exhaust for sale FOREVER and had not takers, so I decided the RISS was too loud and I would get the Bastuck ceramic coated and maybe get a midpipe to get some added volume, since it wasn't quite loud enough.
I think they turned out great and the look is what I wanted. The build quality of the exhaust is excellent. It's build like a Panzer tank. I've always loved the tips, even before the coating.

As a side note, the day after I sent the exhaust to the coaters a buyer PM's me, then 3 days later a SECOND guy PM's me saying he also wants the exhaust!!!

Before the Ceramic Coating:





AFTER coating. The car's not clean at all, but you get the idea:

Looks great Aus.

And you did it the right way. (high-temp ceramic coating)

Great high-quality exhaust + custom flat black 'stealth' tips = WIN

I like it both ways. It actually looks similar to the GTS exhaust in the unpainted form IMHO.

It looks great, I am going to go this route as well. I like the quality, the looks, the fitment, and the noise levels are exactly what the car needs without being annoying!

It cost $225. I'll post where I got it done later tonight in the Cali section when I get home. I don't have the info with me since someone dropped it off for me.

Looks great!

Would love to hear what the Bastuck sounds like with an xpipe, bet the combo would be amazing.

Easy cosmetic fix. I had the tips of my Agency Power done that way and the look from the rear looks really cool with black tips
Good choice, but sucks you couldn't sell it

Tips before and after look really good. If it was mine I would have left them alone because before the coating they looked absolutely excellent IMO. But to each his own, I guess!

LOL. That's why I got the can coated too. You really can't see it in person... unless you're sitting on the ground like I was taking that pic.

Thanks and I was surprised to learn the powder-coating is only good for about 600F and an exhaust can get much hotter than that.

The GTS is an Akra, which is a couple steps up, but thanks.

That's what I'm thinking too. It's just a little too quiet as it is now for me.

I loved them before too, but this will go with the look I'm going for.

The info on the coating and installer is here: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=340204

What you guys think of a black ceramic coated exhaust with a diffuser on an AW car?
