Welcome to the forum :wink:

Autosol Chrome metal polish is one of the best on the market. Can you post some photos that may help. How old is the chrome? This may seem like an odd question but are you sure it's chrome or just plastic trim made to look like it?

Sounds like they are not Chromed metal, but thinly coated chrome effect plastic. No detailing product will restore the original Chrome look.

You could remove the trim and respray them in a chrome colour and then a clearcoat, or buy replacement trims.

If it is plastic then road traffic film remover will be the bad guy who caused the problem :twisted:
