147 GTA chrome intakes

Does anybody know if it's possible to get the intakes re-chromed on the 3.2 v6 fitted to the GTA's?

Or as a second option anyone selling good ones?

Mine have quite a lot of oxidisation and look fairly poor (I haven't had the car long and the last owner obviously didnt worry about this)

i tried some autosol on mine and they came up pretty well they look much better than what they did anyway, maybe worth a go before trying more expensive ways to get the mshiny again

Its very tough to get it clean and do not use soapy water!!! I would suggest using WD40 to get most of the dirt free. Longer term get it powdercoated!

Are these the same size as fitted on the 3.0 litre?
I have a spare set that have been rechromed at the platers and have not yet got around to fitting
Willing to sell them for 120 plus p&p exchange

Same as the 3.0 but the 2.5's are smaller diameter.

Autosol does the job though.
