    fabspeed carbon fiber exhaust tips

    Has anyone ever installed the Fabspeedicon carbon fiber exhaust tips on their car? I asked in a facebook group, and someone said that the carbon fiber fades and turns yellowish over time.. Thanks..

    That wouldn't surprise me. It is the cured resin that gets cloudy or yellows. Most resins used in composites are incapable of handling high heat especially an exhaust tip that sees extremely high temps.

    As mentioned above, yes, the resin in the carbon fiber can turn yellow over time due to UV exposure and heat. Most carbon fiber tips are held together with rivets which hold the stainless steel and carbon fiber shells together - that is also a common point of failure / rust. We're developing a solution to prevent both of these but in the meantime our black tips have been a hot seller. Let us know if you have any interest!

    I had them installed on my car about a year ago, and yes the Fabspeedicon lettering did turn from the bright white when new, to a yellowish brown now. Quite honestly, I prefer the way they look now. It gives it a more used/aggressive/motorsporty look to it as opposed to a bright and shiny garage queen look. As long as the part doesn't fail for whatever reason, I am totally happy with the product. Of course, other folks may have different opinions. That being said, I believe Fabspeed have since changed the design of the CF tips and now use a laser etch that is a bit of a different look from the version I have.
