    Millteks with Rusty Tailpipe Interiors

    Just bought a second-hand Milltek for my V8 S4 (B6) and the insides of the tailpipes are a little corroded.

    I know some exhausts will have a coating inside and I didn't want to risk scrubbing it off.

    Can anyone recommend the best course of action?

    Here's the nearside pipe (the offside is just the same):

    00 grade wire wool leaves scratches in stainless.

    It can be hard to find, but it's worth getting 0000 grade. We use Alutech Metal polish; that'd sort those pipes out nicely: Raceglaze Alutech Metal Polish | Raceglaze Car Care & Detailing Products

    Just a little addition and I know it doesn't help your problem but stainless doesn't corrode. So either it's not a stainless exhaust or it's some sort of deposit that can be removed with autosol.
