Ferric Grey exhaust tips

Post by Cabbage Patch » Thu Jun 21, 2018 10:51 am

Just wondered if anybody has had their exhaust tips powder coated Ferric Grey to match their wheels?

My wife kerbed a wheel on her M140 and is having it repaired at Platinum Alloys in Swindon. They strip and powder coat the rim and I was considering asking them to powder coat the exhaust tips at the same time. I can't find any pics of tips in Ferric Grey online and wonder is this is because they'd look rubbish! I think the standard black tips blend in too much, the chrome stand out too much so thought Ferric Grey might be a Goldilocks option!

Any thoughts?

Only one way to find out, but personally I think it would be a nice contrast with the rear "lower bumper colour".

The OEM exhaust tip colour tends to disappear.
