For full titanium there is Dixis and Arqray. I think Kriessieg might have a titanium version of their exhaust.

I want my exhaust pipes covered in snake skin..I also would want to have that "natural feeling" so that when the snake skin is starting to get crusty it will shed by itself.
At that point I will have a yellow warning light in my HUD telling me to change skin....I would keep the skins in the small "pocket" in the trunk and you just pull the skin on the exhaust as if it was a condom...

Titanium exhaust...pffffff...snake skin all the way bro!

Liquido, LOL. I was thinking of having mine made out of bamboo. I hear it produces awesome tones.

Well, Ti exhausts are mainly for weight savings. For comparison the E46 M3 muffler in Ti weighs around 11lb. And since the material is different and thinner, it usually results in a louder exhaust.

most of the weight savings from a muffler are due to design more than material and since titanium is such a poor choice for exhaust parts why bother...unless you just like the pretty colors.
