'08 328i muffler exhaust tips question

We now own an '08 328i Atlantic Blue retractable hardtop. It replaced my accident destroyed Z4.
The Z4 had two stainless(?) exhaust tips and I covered them with chrome tips. With the 328i, the exhaust tips have an aluminum color. They were crappy dirty so I cleaned with WD40, 409 and Scratch-X. Ok but not great looking. The tips seem to be pressed on with no retaining screws. Are they original or did someone add aftermarket tips? On the muffler side, they seem to be suspended in air with no evidence of a weld mark. I would like to replace the tips with chrome tips. Big job removing the aluminum tips? Other than BMW, can you suggest a source of high quality chrome tips?
Thanx and happy holidaze to y'all.
