I know there has been some discussion about this but is there a DEFINITIVE answer, rather than opinion out there ?
Must admit I tire of trying to keep the stock exhaust tips clean, so looking for a chromed upgrade.
There are loads of B8 tips on Ebay but there is some doubt if they fit the S4 (mine's a B8, not B8.5).
So has anyone found a solution that works ? Are the stock tips welded on ? Do replacements have to be as well or are there push on / bolt on options ?

OEM tips are crimped on, but OEM replacements are extortionate cost (think £70 x4 from memory)

I've managed to clean mine up pretty well using fine wire wool and metal polish, but they do get grubby again quickly.

Can't comment on alternatives as haven't looked into it

Just cleaned mine with Coca-Cola and tin foil! Came up a treat. Trust me it works!

I also tried out cleaning with Coke, and it works. Not sure what exactly removes all the stuff, but cleaning is really easy.

That sounds too good to be true but I'm dying to give it a go myself!

My exhaust tips look like they came from the factory black so I was wondering what I could do about them.

Will give this a go the next time I wash the car.  Question, would any Coke do? or does it have to be the original variety?
