One more thing, what product do you use to keep the chrome exhausts clean and shine. The exhaust fume has discoloured the finish and this deposit is very hard to remove.
Thanks

I can't be bothered buying any special chrome cleaner, so I just use the Meguiars NXT polish on the alloys & on the twin exhausts as well.
I haven't had too much of a soot build up on them yet, probably because I clean them with the polish whenever I polish the car body- usually every few weeks. It seems to make it easier to get the dirt off the chrome & alloys when they do get covered.

If you are having problems, warm water should loosen the dirt & then you can dry it & go over it with a polish.

There again, you could just be less lazy & use a 'proper' chrome polish!
