SIP EVO Exhaust

I’ve recently bought a SIP EVO 2003 exhaust for my PX200. I’ve bought the mild steel version that comes powder coated black.
Is this coating likely to last very long or will it soon rust through?
Is it worth me spending a bit more and getting the exhaust chromed or stove enamelled before I fit it?

Thanks all,


it will flake off after a while with the heat. but you can buy tins of heat pruff paint so its easy to keep on top of. I got my pipe from sip about 5 years ago and apart from a scratched to fuck can its like new. ;D

Thanks hessner.
Maybe I will just put it on and when it starts to flake just rub it down and paint it.
