So I finally got around to getting the Autosol Aluminium Polish.
I'm in Australia and bought it from Autobarn for AU$10 for a 75ml tube (and I would guess I've only used 10ml for this application only).

So the result is good.
Easy to use... Application is like any other polish. Using a cloth and a small amount of the polish, work in circular motion to polish the aluminium trim.
The instructions that came with the polish states to continue to polish until the residue starts to turn a grey/black colour - but i polished and polished and never got to this grey/black coloured residue...

After polishing the 'white cloudy' effect was removed and returned the aluminium back to an even finish. It was still a dull finish but I applied some wax polish to seal it and give it some extra shine.

I still cant achieve a super shiny finish on it, but its definitely better than before. I'd have to rate the result as 7/10.

But for the sake of only $10 and 10mins of effort, I'd rate this overall as a 9/10.

So this is the UNtreated side...
