Remus cf exhaust tips logo removal

Hello, i have recently purchased a remus sport with the carbon fiber tips.
I do not like the remus branding on the exhaust tip.
Has anyone had success removing this branding logo from the cf wxhaust tip without causing damage to the carbon fiber?
I also thought about painting the carbon fiber but prefer not to.
My other option would be to replace the tip with another brand name , anyrecomendations?
Thanks

Wow u hate them that much.

Looks like the logo is on top of the carbon fiber which a solvent may remove but in saying that they appear to be a matt finish tip so there is high probability that u will ruin it as there is no way to refinish it unlike gloss carbon.

U could potentially get the Remus straight cut tips and rotate them upside down so the logo is not visible

I would buy another set if u can find ones that fit and sell these.

Good luck

Agree 100%. It's a shame about those logos. Much prefer the understated look.

Same exhaust tips, same annoyance

Perhaps some form of heat resistant epoxy treatment

Or you know, just turn the tips upside down

They are angle cut. Would look goofy as hell upside down.

If I had that exhaust I'd have an exhaust shop tuck the tips further back, which would solve your problem.

Paint the logo/lettering part black or dark grey so they're less noticeable? Just a thought if you cant sell them.

WD-40?

I've had good luck removing tacky sticker & PPF residue from things without ruining a finish?

No promises, but it's a thought.

Thank for the advise so far. I will try some cleaning solvents on the underside of the tip and see how they affect the finish hopefully ill find a winner. Looking for knockoff options at the moment. Also contemplating covering the section with a piece of vinyl tape. Interestind idea about tucking the tips fuether jnboard as well. Thanks all

Haha, I'm aware

I might actually try and invert them (if it's even possible) and report back
