    Shiney Exhaust!

    When i brought my car through private it has got a sooty exhaust. I hate not having a shiney exhaust, i think it looks smart. But they wont shine. I have tried Autosol which is supposed to be the nuts, its budged some of the soot but its still not gleamin like i want it too. Anybody got any tips?

    Before you all ask, they are the exhaust tips that can be cleaned. lol

    thats what i used it was fine scrubbed it with the ruff side then cleaned it done it again with a yellow cloth with autosol then buffed hard polished really hard then its like new be warned though 2 days later they will be soot alover the bottom and everytime you drive but its much easyer to move than before but if you dont get a shine keep doing it it took about 3 cleans with a washing pad rough side and 10 mins of polish and buff lots of elbow glease and it will come up like new

    I sprayed bilberry wheel cleaner on mine then scrubbed with a wheel brush! Came up a treat.

    They seem to stay clean for quite a while even though its one of those dirty smelly diesels Guess thats down to the DPF.
