Stock exhaust pitted

New to the forum and looking to see if anyone may have a solution for this. I have had my mk7 GTI for about 7 months now and I cleaned my stock exhaust tips today only to see that they are badly pitted. I have read other threads saying that they have had this happen to them as well but so far no possible solutions outside of getting a new catback exhaust. Any help or advice is appreciated.

You can simply get new tips. Lots of different types (screw on, weld on, etc.). No need for a full catback.

Have the oem tips cut off and replaced with welded on bigger, real stainless ones that fill the diffuser properly.

Time to upgrade to a Clubsport S muffler

Bigger tips, better sound, OEM fit and finish. It's a win-win-win.

Ceramic coat the new tips and just wipe them down with each wash and you'll be set.

Thanks for the advice. I have been eyeing up the Remus exhaust but that clubsport does have a little better tune to it. Probably for a lot cheaper too. Just a shame that this happened less than a year of owning the car.

I tried some metal polish on mine and it cleaned up nicely for most of the outside barrel. The very bottom inside the lip I could not remove the stain completely. The car runs pretty rich so it must be a GTI thing. I gave up and just wipe it down the best I can after a wash.

I don't have such black carbon build up on my Golf-R. One year later all 4 tips are still like-new.
