Noticed some tough grime on the inner portion of the chrome exhaust cover on my Coupe. Any recommendations for a good product to remove it safely - simple chrome cleaner? Doesn't wipe of easily. Thanks.
Once you clean with either chrome or other wax cleaner I have had no problem cleaning by simply using wet rag or towel. The first time may tough. I keep them clean at least every other day. I love shiny chrome.

Re: Coupe Chrome Exhaust Cleaning
While I am an advocate of Bar Keepers Friend it is still an abrasive, ever so slight. I won't use it on a highly polished piece of metal. BKF is good stuff, and I make my statement only because I have not used it long term on any metal (but it is an abrasive however you want to look at it). This is not a joke, but has anyone tried toothpaste? I haven't, but that has to be some type of polish/abrasive and may work. Dunno, food for thought.
Just an FYI - this is the chrome piece that surrounds the opening for the exhaust on the coupes. With the sedan I used to wax the ends of the exhaust pipes but with the coupes, the exhaust is tucked in behind the chrome covering. Theres just a small amount of grime at the inner portion of the chrome cover not really noticeable except to me.

I shine the chrome piece. IMO the other is like cleaning the inside of a exhaust pipe, why waste your time you can't see it when someone is following you. A chimney cleaner might work but be careful when applying.
