Are the tailpipe tips on my 03 Z Titanium?

Is it possible to remove the slight colors on them? If so, what should I use?

Thanks!

No...the tips are steel flash chromed. I used clear coat polishing compound and semichrome to take the colors off and get them shiny again.

Are you sure Siska? Because the exhaust system for the 2001 was described as
"The titanium portion of the Z06's exhaust system starts just forward of the rear axle, then goes over the top of the axle to the muffler. The entire muffler, all of its internal parts and exterior skin, the outlet pipes, including the exhaust tips, are constructed of titanium."
:-?

That's not correct. The catback system on the Z06 is all Titanium including the tips. I used to think that the tips were Stainless steel, but I have learned different. I believe DJWorm set me straight.

Any Chrome or metal polish will work on the tips. :cheers:

I agree with IT L GO, I used some Mothers Billet when I had my stock system and was able to remove all the discoloration.
