    Hi,

    i have an e46 coupe with the 2 chrome exhaust tips,

    any advice on how to make them shine again? seems like they have never been cleaned.

    ill probably buy some new ones at some point but more important things need doing first service etc

    so would just like to clean them up as best as i can for now,

    Many thanks, Paul.

    edit, also instead of making a new thread

    there a kind of sensor on the back of the rear view mirror, any idea what it does?

    thanks

    i thought that would be the answer, i had a nice full tube but lost it, then noticed i had run it over on the drive a few weeks ago.

    guess ill have to get another tube,

    thanks

    Another +1 for autosol, worked well on my old Octavia vrs which when I bought it off Essex police the exhaust had clearly never been cleaned. Also worked on my old Fiesta ZS's exhaust removing rust and built up soot, also made a brushed aluminium gear knob in my racing puma into a mirror finish with autosol.

    I'm guessing the sensor on your rear view mirror will be an auto dimming sensor.
