    Freshening the Borbets up?

    As a lot of you know or have seen I'm running a lovely set of fully polished Borbet A's on the Jetta!
    Now I've purposely not run the Jetta over the winter due to not wanting to ruin them (had a set of polished lip MIM's on my last Jetta and wrecked them)!
    The Jetta is sitting in the open and is getting a regular bath but the wheels are suffering with water marks and are looking a bit weathered and dull!
    What's the best way to get them sparkling again?

    I had some diamond cut kerscher carmona's on my mk3 (similar to borbets) and I had to autosol my dishes once a week as they started to lose their shine after a few days of damp/wet driving, got it down to about 30mins for all four polished. Not too bad but the gleem from them is so satisfying when done, it never gets boring! My wheels came lacquered but only lasted one winter, had them cut back and never regretted it!
