Just got my 2004 CLK320 and I was just polishing the windscreen (as you do) and noticed the trim around it looked dull and oxidised, is there anything I can use to bring it back to looking nice again?

Not sure if it's metal or if its plastic to be honest.

It's anodised aluminium. Very little you can do, I would leave it.

Just use something like Autoglym Super Resin polish with a microfibre cloth. Try it first in a corner before you do the whole thing.

I think I saw on here or t'other side that WD40 does a good job on re-vitalising plastic chrome look trim - but please don't quote me!!

Agree it's most likely anodised and the coating is oxidising.

T-Cut it thoroughy, mask-off and spray with an aerosol.

If it looks worse, T-cut the new paint off and live with it!
