Hey Bradleytri - I read your other posts, however i am hoping its your weather or other conditions. I plan on installing them and hoping for the best. If they pit, I will search for another option or maybe even try to figure out an option. maybe taking them to a paint shop and having the clear coated or something..if none of you have read other threads about the K badges, watch out. mine only lasted about 4 months before they started to become dull and show a pitting look on the chrome. and for the record i keep my ride clean all the time.
