I'm seriously considering Akra or E-Sport. What I don't like are logos. Especially 4 logos, one on each tip. I particularly don't like the bright white Akra logo on their CF tips. Does anyone know how difficult it would be to remove the logos from either exhaust? Other than painting polished tips, what are my options?

Good question. I don't like the Eisenmann logo on my tips either.

For the tips that aren't welded on, can't the tips be mounted with the logo on the bottom? Very difficult for anyone to see the logo that way.

You can special order the Eisenmann with no logos on the tips. Very simple option to remove.

Can iND paint Akra titanium tips black and thus conceal the logo?

Is there anything that can be done for those of us who already bought Eisenmann?

They can powder coat and logos will be gone. They did a custom set for me. INCREDIBLE work.

We can ceramic coat a set of Akra tips to cover the logos.

Sure we could order you a set of tips but you would need to find a shop that is willing to remove the current tips and weld the new ones on.
