    Noticed when cleaning the Avant that the ali/silver roof rails are starting to loose their ali look, as in looking like they are loosing there plating/ dis-colouring in parts.

    Gonna try cleaning them with metal polish but I doubt very much that they are in fact metal?

    Any tips for what people have used to clean their roof rails or if they have the same issue?

    Cheers All :)

    Try Workstatt Acrylic Prime, can get it from Poished Bliss - I have found it brings both roof rails and the window trim back to 'as new'

    Cheers, that seems to be a polish as well, is that right or is it just for trim?
