We've seen small little flakes from the ceramic coating after having them on the car for awhile, but nothing compared to what will happen if you just powder coat them. When we first started powder coating the exhausts the paint would come off very fast. But ceramic coating is a different story, its very durable.

and no sound difference between the dual walled tips and single walled?

Im switching my catless xpipe and sport to the HFC xpipe and race(dual walled ceramic coated black). Love you guys! Hows the move going?

Went from HFC sport to catless sport now to HFC race.
