M Performance Exhaust Pipes.

For those of you who have the M Performance Exhaust, have you figured out a way to keep the pipes clean and shiny? As soon as I wash the car the pipes are dull within a day.

It drives me nuts!!

I can't even get them clean...tempted to try a stainless steel kitchen appliance cleaner I use for my appliances...

Otherwise shit out of luck...the M on the etched logo is so dirty!

When my dealer installed mine they left the pipes a bit short of extending out so I cant even see my M etched logo

Have you tried Mother's power ball? I had great results using that in the past for all my chrome and stainless stuff.

I decided to try NeverDull. I used it on Saturday and the pipes are still shiny . . . .
