Exhaust tip plasti-dip - keep or undo?

Plasti-dipped my exhaust tips today, should I keep them or strip back to the stock glossy black? Looking for some input here, your honest opinion won't hurt my feelings one way or the other.

Re: Ordered Power Slot Rotors

I recently ordered slotted and drilled rotors for my pickup (2010 Ford Adrenalin) - for the same reason. The old brakes were good with no problems, but I wanted the cosmetics the rotors provided.

Re: Unusual behavior with my Uconnect 8.4A
