    I was wondering what you all are using to clean and protect the outside of these mirrors with? I noticed last night mine were beginning to get an oxidized look to them (bluish hues). I'm guessing something like a "back to black" product would work but thought asking wouldn't be a bad option either...

    VRP from ChemGuys is typically cheaper and you can buff down the shine if needed.

    ChemGuys i cant stand their marketing. 6 items do the same shit.

    I use meguiars ultimate compound and then follow up with wax. Works wonders and it's not some sort of gimmicky product like the others IMO
