SD, 19 months, 12.5k miles, black tips, no corrosion.

I've mentioned this before, but my car rarely gets washed and when it does, I coat the tips with silicone spray - seems to work?

No they won’t cover them on ext warranty which is nothing like the new car warranty coverage, primarily covers only major elements of the vehicle. Wouldn’t waste your time progressing my second pair have gone the same way as the previous, so l just live with it as most of the time they are dirty anyway 🤕😉

As I mentioned earlier, there is always the option of having them coated yourself, with one of the coatings on the market. A lot cheaper than having to replace them.

Getting mine replaced under warranty on Friday

Had a similar issue with an RS4. Carefully rubbed down the exhaust on the Audi, masked everything, and repainted with a rattle can of High Temp Gloss Black from Halfords

Finish was as good as factory, and lasted 3 years, longer than the factory finish. Was Plan B if Porsche said 'no'
