Aftermarket Replacement For Skanky GT Backbox?

Morning Guys!

Haven't posted ina while but been reading as usual.
I'm after some help, 10 months on the backbox on my Blackline diesel is looking terrible.
Aside from leaning to one side (which alfa repeatedly insist they can do nothing about), the chrome is coming off it and polishing just removes more chrome than it shines up.

Rather than mess about with another one from Alfa, what can I get that WILL stay shiny? Ovals or twins, don't mind. Pics, Prices etc all appreciated.

I'm not interested in noise, as far as I'm concerned the quieter the better. I just want it to stay looking nice

Cheers guys.

if you don't mind the sound of the current exhaust, you could talk to your local exhaust workshop about just changing the tip. they can saw off the original, and weld on a new one. that may be the cheapest option, and you can choose whatever style you like.

perhaps go with a polished stainless steel tip.

if you want aftermarket they will invariable be louder. Ragazzon, CSC, Superspring, Remus...take your pick.
