Chrome Intake Pipes for N18 JCW

Does anyone know if there is a manufacturer that sells like a chrome intake pipe kit for a 2013 N18 JCW? I'm looking to do the whole intake system. From air box to the turbo. Turbo to the intercooler. Intercooler to the manifold. What can I say? I love chrome. Just looking to see if there is already something out there before I start going the custom route.

For the N18, I only know of a few "hard" pipe options for all those pieces, and none are chrome.

I was kind of figuring I'd have to go the custom route. I was also on the fence about the Forge red silicone tubes. But I'm kind of worried that it would look tacky unless I did all the intake and coolant piping in red.

I suspect that all metal intake plumbing would pick up under hood heat moreso than the silicone units. If that is the case, air going into the turbo would be hotter and less dense. Don’t know if the intercooler would drop the temp enough to get you back to what you would have with non-metal plumbing.
