    Well I finally got around to spraying the heat shield with the same high heat semi matt paint as the pipe and refitted it. I think it looks a hundred times better than the blingy chrome which was the main reason I went for the Remus Blackhawk in the first place...looks rather than sound as I was quite happy with sound of the original pipe..any fitted now and pics attached..:)

    Well done sir, your black pipe is infinitely better than the chrome abomination shipped with the bike.

    The powder coated pipe of the OP is certainly an improvement over the chrome too, but for my taste, the black pipe appeals more. With the grey pipe, your eye is drawn more to it because it's not a colour you're used to seeing on an exhaust, whereas, the black draws less attention to itself.

    Something I have een looking at recently - thanks for the excellent photos, it's not something many have done.
    I found two very good shops in UK that will ceramic coat in various colours.
    Ceramic has some benefits over the paint, and you can do the headers too (850C + some colours)

    Might be the winter project to do both headers and silencer.
    I'm with you, the sound is OK and many aftermarkets sound like a brush-cutter on this crazy engine. Also its technically unmodified - negating any surcharging at insurance cover time... like it!

    I think pretty much every single owner does.

    What the hell BMW were thinking is beyond me.
