Are borla exhaust stainless steal?

Hey guys just a random question... Are borla exhausts stainless steal and therefore shouldn't rust even if on your car throughout winter? Just wondering as I'm looking at buying a used pair and the pic that was sent looks pretty rusty.

Thanks in advance

Have had my borla's for a year now just crawled under with a flashlight not a lick of rust. Thank you for making me remember why I spent a little extra $. Of course I hear it every time...

Those probably aren't Borla's then, they shouldn't rust, and definitely not that much.

but you can see it's some sort of grime because there's fingerprints that clean off the black. right?

Looks like the Borla design, and look closely it says Borla on them. Also doesn't look like rust since you can see small scratches and finger prints where it got rubbed off. Its a residue of some sort.

Yes I initially thought it was rusty it upon actually looking at the picture it doesn't look like rust... More so of a film and grime from winter driving. These are apparently a year and a bit old so was asking the forum car guys what they thought.... They are borla s types

Buy them, spray some simple green on them and scrub with a sponge. Should look like new after.
