It most likly has some sort of ceramic coating to stop the heat from affecting the paint.

That was my idea. My Elise runs the Larini SE tip (above the difusser) and the starshield above the tips is really discolored. I ran a de-cat for a few months with this setup before I reverted to the larini sport cat and noticed the yellowish discoloration of the starshield. The starshield also looks to have a wavy pattern; before it was smooth.

Does a decat prematurely shorten the life of the rear starshield?

p.s. the scud would look better with a regular F430 front end, minus the stripes.
