Oxidation on the shadowline trim

Anyone experiencing the same issue? Is there a product out there to remove it?

I don't have it on my M but I've seen it on many BMWs. My buddies M3 had a bad case of it. Use a light polish and applicator foam pad and rub it clean. After it's clean, apply sealant to prevent it from oxidizing again.

I would try HD cleanse from Zymol with a foam pad.

That is the best stuff out there. - Also, be sure to use a wax after the fact as well, I wax the trim just as I do the vehicle's paint.

^^^^ that should work. Any light polish - Meguiars 205, autofinesse triple, Menzerna PF 2500 etc. If it's really bad maybe step up to Meguiars 105, menzerna PF1500

I ended up using Klasse AIO on a microfiber towel, left a nice protected layer too.
