Stock 2014 981 S exhaust tips - Chrome/stainless steel/polish allu ?

Recommended Posts

Hello all.


I guess that my newbee question will be easier to answer than my last one about amber orange dye.


I'm buying a pre-owned 2014 Boxster S with stock exhaust.  The initial owner NEVER cleaned the exhaust tips, so they are really ugly.  They are so dirty that they look black.


I'll get the car tomorrow and I want to buy the appropriate products to restore these exhaust tips promptly but I don't know if the tips are chromed ? stainless steel finish ? or polished alluminium ?  


Whitout that info, it is difficult to buy the appropriate products.

Yes I'm sure and few minutes ago I got confirmation from the actual owner that since he bought the car brand new in 2014, he never washed the exhaust tips...  He was washing the car every time he used it but he never cared about the exhaust tips.


I've checked his car option list (using a VIN decoder) and there is no mention about a black exhaust tips option or sport exhaust tips.  So I'm 99% sure they aren't black.    But I do agree they look flat black.


I'll begin by washing them with water and car cleaning soap using a gentle brush (like the one we use for wheels) and I'll see what they look like and determine which product to use.


I've checked in 2014 Boxster S standard equipment in case they were talking about the exhaust tips, but unfortunatly nothing about it.
