Eagle one wadding polish or meguiar's all metal restorer. Both will work great, and both can be readily bought off the shelf at your local auto part store.

Both are very good products for exhaust tips, lately I have been using einszett chromefledge and I definitely prefer it. Chromefledge also works well on the metal pieces in the engine bay.

Excellent product also. . .might be a lil tougher to find right off the shelf, but do definately give that a shot if you don't mind ordering off the net.

if you have chrome exhaust tips, the best item for making them look brand new is right in your fridge. coke and aluminium foil on exhaust tips work wonders because of the carbonation in the soda reacting with the carbon deposits on your tips. i tried it on my dads carrera 4 s and they looked brand new

I also like Poorboy's Professional Polish, polished the exhaust off a black 330ci several months ago for a client, i think i posted pics somewhere on this forum too. ;)
