The aluminum trim around the windows on my S60 is starting to look really cloudy and covered in waterspouts/streaks. Do you guys use anything in particular to clean and polish this strip of aluminum? Regular car washing is clearly not the answer, but I'm not sure what else to try!

Try Meguiars Scratch X. It is a light buffing/sratch remover and seems to work well for me. Do not rub hard!

Any type of liquid wax will work, just don't use a metal polish on it.

My buddy owns a body shop, he turned me on to 3M Imperial Hand Glaze, my Chrome Trim on the Grille had water spots, they are all gone, easy application, waxed afterwards.
Not sure about using it on the aluminum trim, as it really doesn't look as shiny as the chrome grille, or polished as much anyway.
