Hi all,

Going to give the exhaust tips a clean tomorrow on my mk5 I was wondering what people recommend. The two products I was looking at are below.

Autoglym metal polish
OR
Autosol metal polish paste

The reviews on halfords are swinging me towards the autosol with 5/5 stars and people saying it only needs to be applied with a rag instead of wire wool which I was not too keen on.

Hey Guys,

As promised here is a picture of the results.

Up nice and early to grab some Autosol Metal Polish.

Went over first with hot soapy water, followed by Autoglym Tar Remover, then applied a small amount of Autosol metal polish.

Repeated the process again just to get any bits i missed as i am terrible for doing half jobs usually so thought i'd put some effort into it this time haha


After using Autosol i can honestly say i will be recommending to others.

Thanks for all your help guys.

Haha, yes i was sat on a bucket, everything within reach, radio on to pass the time scrubbing away for a good hour or so, luckily enough where i live it's cloudy, but dry and warm, so that was a bonus.

Autosol was spot on, made the job so much less work, only a little elbow grease needed really.

Yes get scrubbing MalakianCigaro and let us know how they turn out, to be fair though my exhaust tips were not as sooted as some i've seen, so i was rather lucky it came up the way it did, mind you now when i look at the back of the car the only thing i notice are the exhaust because they gleam lol.
