So, I had a go at tackling these for a customer today, and these are the results. The outer edge of the tailpipes were quite badly corroded and no amount of cleaning/polishing was having any impact other than making the surface smooth. The main parts of the tailpipes were improved by about 90%, which the customer was happy with when you consider how they looked in my original post. Products used were Smart Wheels, Tardis, 0000 steel wool and Autosol

Great improvment

Thats a great improvment but they are still nasty looking,

It amazes me a nice car like that 3 years old and thats bad, some people shouldent have nice things if they cant take care of them!!!!

My straight pipe on my 1.9 TDi looks almost as good as when it was put on 4 years ago

Had the same on a 3 series I bought.

You can improve them a certain amount but that's it, I doubt they had been cleaned much since new.

I'd buy new ones or depending you could possibly have them powdercoated silver.

Wowzer. Neither of my MK7 Fiesta ST tips ever got that bad. My guess is they haven't been touched since new.... They come up lovely and shiney inside and out normally.
