    Tarnished Avant Roof Rails - What do you recommend?

    Hi all

    Newbie to the forum - lots of great information - particularly like the detailing section - wow!

    One gripe I have with my A4 Avant is that the aluminium roof rails are quite tarnished/tired looking.

    When I took it to my main dealer a while back they said to use polish on them to remove the 'tarnish' - tried this but it didn't have any noticable effect.

    What do the professional detailers use on these?

    Any recommendations on a product to clean these up properly? I've tried Megs Metal Polysh but hasn't made much impact?


    Thanks in advance

    We use Jeffs Werkstatt Prime Strong for this type of task. If you check out the thread linked below you'll see the effect is has on this type of problem; in the thread Clark demonstrates how well it brings up tarnished wheel caps...

    Here is a link to the product on our site for more info on it...

    It goes on best with a German Pad (white side) and should be buffed off with MF work towels.

    Bit surprised the Megs metal polish had no effect though; it's got a fair degree of bite?

    Cheers!!

    I might have another go with the Megs polish this weekend and if not I think I'll be adding the Jeffs to my ever increasing first order from you guys (roll on pay day!)

    thanks again
