    How do you guys clean your muffler / exhaust system?

    Drove up behind my 981BS in the garage with headlights on in my other car and noticed that the muffler looked a bit brown . I got stuck into them with AutoSol and this thick brown residue started to come off slowly. They are almost back to the way they should be after a 2nd application.

    Just wondering how often you guys have to do this or at all? My car is only 6 months since delivery so I'm surprised it could get such a nasty build-up so quick to deter from the nice metal shine.??

    Re: How do you guys clean your muffler / exhaust system?

    For the tips I used Borlaicon Chrome cleaner. Just a basic chrome cleaner..in conjunction with some fine bronze wool and cloth. I haven't done the actual exhaust yet tho I noticed the same thing as you the other day. When I had my 2003 boxster stock exhaust removed a long while ago I use borla, the wool and elbow grease and it worked pretty well. Makes me think it would work... not sure if it is the right product for the rest of the exhaust or not tho...

    I had a load of cosmolene on mine. When I swapped to a carnewal I cleaned the new one with a wire brush and steel wool. It still looks ok except for road grime. This is on an 06CS. In the pic below you can see the mufflers on either side of the Dream 2 tips

    I use Simple Green Motorsports. It comes in the blue bottle. Works the best, any dirt, soot, etc, comes right off.
