Chromium plated and Stainless-steels tips are just that. Showpieces.
As we all know in the multifarious cars we have owned in our lives,
the exhaust system of the car invariably corrodes and needs replacement.
In our tropical zone, multiple monsoons, (in the snow belt, the salt on the roads) coupled with the high exhaust temperatures makes for a perfect oxidizing environment for the iron content in the steel.
But high-end car users have a solution. It's stainless steel. By alloying nickel and chromium to the steel, resistance to corrosion is achieved. Throwing money at the problem, yields a hard wearing solution. Precision manufacturing using aircraft-quality T-304 stainless steel prevents corrosion, and can be guaranteed for the life of the car -- from showroom to scrap yard. An SS exhaust system can cost anywhere from Rs. 25,000 to Rs. 32,000 depending on length.

yes i go with ram, jus recently i got a leak on my ikon exhaust and the corrosion it seems came from the inside ( well i love the sporty sound of it now)
dealer dude told me that the water residue accumulates in the pipe and causes this. I need to get the piece welded for my next service
Solution: Revv the engine just before switching it off to clear the water in the pipe.
