Tip Of The Day For All You V6 Owners !
Have your inlet pipes gone a bit rusty or tarnished? Mine have, so I called Alfa Romeo to get a quote for 6 new ones - £27.14 each + the Vat! So I looked into getting them re-plated, until I came across what I thought was a load of nonsense...
Forget the Autosol and Autoglym metal polishes to start with. Dampen some kitchen foil with some Coke, and gently rub onto the pipes. Then apply some good polish and see what happens! I was amazed how they came up, pretty much like new.
I apologise if this is already a known fact amongst everyone, but if it isn't then I thought I would be a handy tip to pass around. I used Tesco Cola, by the way, as being an Alfa owner my budget currently doesn't allow me to buy luxuries like Coca Cola - but I'm sure it works just as well!
