    I have the standard exhaust on my 3.2 A3 and at the moment it's pretty filthy, with what looks like thick black soot around the outer tips. I tried cleaning it up with just an old rag and some warm water but that hasnt helped much, I thought about brillo pads or something of that ilk but thought they may be too abrasive.

    I noticed in quite a few pics on here a lot of you guys have shiny tail pipes (oo er)... any tips on how best to clean up an exhaust?

    Then you can use Megs NXT Polish followed by Blackfire Metal Sealant :wub:

    As above, Autosol is the future.
