I use wd -40. I donít want anything with any kind of abrasive.
Donít think any cars use chrome / chromium any more. Everything now i guess is a paint or brushed cheap metal with maybe a clear coat...

0000 steel wool and some Mother's chrome polish followed up by paint prep wipe down and CarPro DELUX. Future cleanings will require just a wash.
