I'd like to have the header on my 2018 RT coated to eliminate the very ugly brown it's turned after 7K miles.
As most of you know, BMW integrated the exhaust flapper into the header rather than leaving it as a separate
section as had been done in earlier models.

The question is does anyone have any experience getting their header ceramic coated on the newer model?
My concern is the bearings on the spindle that the flap is attached to might be damaged when the header is put
in a 700 degree oven for a prolonged period of time.

Both my local shop and the guys I've used in NC on previous jobs can't answer the question!

Thanks for any insights.
