different tailpipe finishers

Curious to know which type were tail pipe finishers were standard on which Lines.

I have the X-Line, and I thought I read when I ordered that they tailpipe tip was supposed to be chrome, but my car came with satin silver ones which have stained already. I'm considering asking for the chrome ones given the duribility of the statin ones. The tips always have lots of soot and it doesn't come off easily or completely.

What other finishes were offered? What Line did you buy and what tailpipe finish did you get?

Black chrome (Shawdowline) or black from dirt and soot? Is the tip unfinished steel? What model year is your X1?

All X135's get black chrome exhaust pipes no matter the line. The x128 gets varied, just not sure what options they get.

Double checked my Canadian '13 build sheet and yes only 2 options:
black chrome for 35i
matt chrome for 28i

Here are my black chromes.

My X1 sDrive28i Sport has matte tips, if that helps at all. It looks to me like brushed stainless steel, not chrome. I'm pretty sure it's not unfinished steel.

You mention Soot which could relate to Diesel and Tips which could relate to petrol.
What Model X1 do you have?

Petrol, S28i.

Anyone have polished chrome tips?

I guess I have the matt chrome ones, if that's what they are called. I think they are closer to satin silver than any chrome. Perhaps that how BMW calls them as opposed to brilliant chrome.

Anyone else have problems with stains on the matt tips?
