opinions on Chrome/ceramic/stainless headers

This is purely an aestetic question. Our rod has a set of ram horns on it and it's ugly. I MAY be able to get a set of shorty headers in there. anyone have experience with low end headers, like Jegs, summit, etc? Which ones will look better longer?

Personally I think the ceramic coated ones hold up better last longer and need less maintenance..Just a thought tho..

headers

I'm not having trouble finding them, I'd like to hear some comments.
Plain steel is ugly/ chrome turns blue/ceramicl looks like paint etc.
It's not a show car, it gets driven - so what looks best, longest?

Buddy of mine has the Speedway polished stainless ram horn headers and they are really sweet.
