    sounds no idea, but i guess, i dunno why you dont want it to be shiney, but you could always continuously rub it with a brick or something... seroiusly.

    i'd really say your best bet is to choose a different muffler, maybe a carbon can or a nice satin finish titanium. Apex'i N1 mufflers are available in a ton of different finishes

    Re: muffler/exhaust

    well i already got it. it was the only one that was 2.5 inlet that didnt have a 4in" or bigger tip which really pissed me off plus it is dual tip which makes it look more stock sense the stock muffler is dual tip.

    Re: muffler/exhaust

    sorry i wrote that wrong, i meant that it pissed me off that all good mufflers have those huge tips that are 4in" or bigger. i really hate that why cant they make good mufflers with normal tips not everyone is a ricer.
