    Silver roof bars

    Hi all, i'm onto my third audi avant now but the first with the silver roof bars, what is the best product to use to remove the very slight tarnishing on them, My roof lining is slightly grubby in places, apart from paying someone to give it a valet with professional gear, what is the best product and process to clean it. cheers

    Carplan do 2 products which I find very good both in a can with integrated brush

    Interior valet and stain valet I think they are called, they are about the only thing I buy from asda!

    I use the interior valet to freshen up fabrics and the stain valet to clean if they are dirty

    Regarding roof bars are they scratched? Otherwise brasso metal polish should bring them up a treat

    They're usually lacquered metal so you shouldn't need a metal polish unless they're very bad.

    I'd use Werkstat Acrylic Prime: Werkstat Prime Acrylic | Werkstat Car Care & Detailing Products

    This will clean them but also lays down some sealant so should help prevent tarnish in the future. If they get to a very bad state thn they get beyond repair and have to be replaced so protection is a good idea.

    You can use Acrylic Prime on paintwork, wheels, glass and metal parts such as exhaust tips too - it's very versatile.

    Strangely I used Werkstat Satin Prot (i know its a product for interior use but it did the job) and it brought my bars up excellently, no more milky looking markings. Whacked some sealant on afterwards for protection.
