    Very true- I experimented with my friend's Audi 2.0T - pipes haven't been detailed in 4 or 5 years. Some degreaser, p21 polish and elbow grease barely made a dent. We will probably need to step up to some fine steel wool to completely remove the grime.

    just get a good chrome/metal polish (mothers makes a great one) and follow the instructions its extremely simple if its not after years of abuse.

    Detailed every time the car is washed, easy clean-up and always looks like new when you keep ahead of it.

    I spray my pipes with kaboom with oxyclean bathroom cleaner, it is a foam that cuts through the residue quickly without hard rubbing.

    I have an 07 GTI and let me tell you, those things are pure black in a second. The GTI also burns alot more oil which is probably some factor in the equation, same with Turbo charged cars.
