Default Does anyone have the corsa extreme with the black one piece exhaust tip?

I have a stock 18 z06 with a Corsa double Helix X pipe and I want to add the Corsa Extreme exhaust to it since I dont really care if I lose the NPP. One thing I hate about the polished stock tips is how 2 of them always get filthy within a mile of cleaning and driving the car. This I like the one tip look of this corsa extreme with the black because this way I dont think it would look bad when the two tips get dirty. Also I havent seen those tips on many corvettes so I think it would look unique. Anyone else has them?

Know what you mean, my stock OEM NPP outer pipes, can't keep them clean. Friend of mine has that set-up on his new yellow/black trim GS, he loves them, looks and sounds good too.

I am anal about keeping clean exhaust tips so I have to wipe the gunk off of the two tips at least once a week and then if I drive the far for a mile they get gunky again.

You're going to have to loose some of that anality with the tips, heat, humidity, temperature, condensation, can't get away from it. When doing shows, I would just wipe them down with a little detailer. Running to a cruise-in or getting together with other enthusiasts, I just wipe them down real quick if in a static sitting display. I keep a dedicated rag in the cleanup kit in the trunk, just takes a few seconds to wipe off.

You get used to it.

Me personally, I hate to pay that much money for a partial exhaust system.
To get the sound I really enjoy, went with a Borla X-pipe that eliminated the secondary cats, pulled the fuse to keep the NPP fully open, and installed a Range AFM device to eliminate the 4 cyl mode (I have an A8 and drive in touring most of the time).
