Thumbs down piss yellow mrt v2 tips....

****UPDATE****
Did this today came out good! Best thing I could of done, really like them.

















I've asked about this before but never got a solution, I clean the exhaust tips atleast twice a week. I tried various things to get the tips back to the silver shine nothing worked, never had exhaust tips change color like this messing up the whole look of the back of the car. What can I do ?

Gold color don't show up as good because its bright out side, ill try to take another pic later...

Sorry I don't have that problem with my MRT V.2 tips . Had mine going on a year now with No issues . Maybe someone else does have this issue and can help you . . Have you called MRT and asked them why this is happening ?

I've never seen them do that before. I leave mine a little black since it takes forever to keep clean

have you tried never dull or brasso? thats what i've always used and they works like a champ. the tips i have now don't yellow, but on previous vehicles they've slightly tarnished. not sure why or how to prevent it.

Sorry to hear about the gold tinting. I have had mine for over 27K miles now. Still look new. I would contact MRT and ask them what they think.

Maybe where you live there's something in on the road or a chemical or something that is making them change color's

Didn't happen to me, only the insides turned black never the tips.

Try some "Tarnex" on them. Looks like baked on Tx clay....
