Just need to sort the exhaust tip out now, it's letting the rest of the car down. I will be getting some #0000 grade steel wool that otruba suggested. What polish and/or cleaners do you recommend? I read an article on your website which used CG Grime Reaper to clean and then Optimum metal polish. Would both of these be suitable/required?
There are lots of ways to get great results cleaning the exhaust tips. Steel wool is not my personal favorite but if they are really dirty it's an effective cleaner. The Grime Reaper is a great cleaner for heavy build ups, but you can sometimes just use a metal polish. The Optimum Metal Polish will clean and polish while leaving light protection.

I also assume you read this article on detailing exhaust tips, but if not it's a great read.

Take care!
