Obviously from the heat.. but wonder if the heat would cause the black paint with the stealth pack option to flake after a while because of the heat. Anyone with the stealth pack having any issues with their exhaust appearance?

No issues with the stealth pack - it's like a ceramic coating - and that stuff isn't going anywhere.

I have issues with staining of the tips as well. On my list of things for the dealer to address.

Isnt it supposed to get some patina!?! Standard or Inconel?

My inconel stealth looks good with some minor flaking at the edges. The pipes are really quite raw (as it should be IMO) unfinished ends of the exhaust, the tips are really the wider finished opening - and mine are perfect.

I have just placed my spec., confirmed my order, car due August, and was advised by McLaren London to include the stealth pack, because the normal exhaust will tarnish. This therefore is a known problem, however, I agree that normally exhausts are lower down the car and go un-noticed (I have included stealth in the order).

Stealth finish - also known as lazy sod finish because it hides the dis-colored exhausts plus the brake dust doesn't show on the wheels
