I'm having the same problem.

Bought a 63 plate C63 AMG Saloon last summer.

First owner clearly never polished the tailpipes!

Got them 85% done - but think either heat OR somebody has reversed car and hit the tailpipes against a high curb and its destroyed the chrome plating?!

Absolutely fine as already mentioned. Just rub a bit of autosol on the wool and rub away. Finish off with a mf cloth. Did mine and came out gleaming after about 29 mins. I know clean the tips every 3 months and takes about 5 mins now.

If you keep on top of them you'll never need to use anything as harsh as 0000 steel wool which I have found recently can leave fine scratches to the tips. On my own tips I find an old MF and metal polish is all that is needed to bring them up like new.

On more heavily contaminated tips you really have no choice but to go with 0000 steel wool though for that first initial clean.

Yes, as above, I wouldn't use the 0000 wire wool regularly- just as the initial hit to get them clean, then seal them (even a coat of polish will help) and just clean on a regular basis and maintain...

Merry Christmas everyone
