    If they were B&B you'd leave well enough alone. But they're not, so...

    I like the blacked out look, may do that on my car! But mine is black with the red I think I would stick to chrome look myself.

    The mufflers aren't chrome. The tips are. I blacked out the mufflers(raw stainless), and left the tips chrome.

    Couldn't tell from the pic, looked like the tips were black.

    Personally I'd leave them, but the blacked out doesn't look bad.
