I'd like to get my tips looking "so fresh and so clean, clean..."

I don't want to buy cheasy tips to replace my stock ones (I don't even know if you can, it looks like they're welded straight on).

Is there a product I can use in combination with elbow grease to get the tips looking newer?

How have you gone about freshining up your tips?

try Never Dull. It generally does a decent job on shining things up.

Hey geoff i got the stuff for ya. Eurosol from www.bavauto.com

Removes rust and all the junk from metal surfaces. You can see some pics the got on bavauto. I bought some and got it sitting on my desk, for when i do my window trim but i havent used it yet. $10 bucks so give it a shot. Last time i bought some paint shit from bavauto for 13 bucks i thought it would look like crap and it turned out to be one of the best puchases i made for my car, hopefully this eurosol will work good on my window trim :)

On my stainless BMW tips I use laquer thiner to get the tar and junk off, then use Mother's Aluminum and Mag polish to shine 'em up. There's probably something more specific for stainless, but that stuff's all I got. You put it on shoe-shine style and they look 10 billion times better. They look brand new. All shiny. I think the trick if you haven't cleaned 'em for a while is the laquer thinner. Just don't get any on your paint. :)

Can you snap a pic of your tips?

Mark - thanks for the tip!

I used thinner as well. Worked quite well. However, I still have some carbon deposite build up I can't see to get rid of.
