What do you mean by "Shorter Pile and Longer Pile"? Excuse me if I'm oblivious XD

I use Mothers Mag & Aluminum Polish
That works well on Titanium? I'm not sure if Stainless Steel and Ti make any difference on what to use to clean/polish it. Just want the best product to use, and if there is a specific type of product to use. I don't know I guess I'm way too anal when it comes to this car lol

I was telling someone in the above comments if the product theyd recommend works well on Titanium or if there is a difference for Stainless Steel and Ti and if there is a specific type of product to use :/

If you are hand polishing, there's no real difference in SS and Ti. Polishes are very fine abrasives and don't remove much surface material. Some polishes may work a little better than others but any product mentioned in this thread will do a very good job. I have no idea how deep the coloration goes but several members with high rep numbers (and that I would trust anyway) have said that they use polish without removing it.

Megiuars NXT all metal polish is safe to use on all metal surfaces stainless steel,titanium etc and will give you excellent results if you use some elbow grease.

I found the Meguiars NXT all metal polish on eBay I use it to clean up my exhaust tips it works very well a specially when my exhaust tips get black and dirty it’s a excellent inexpensive product that works great! I use a lot of the Meguiars products on my Z!

Nice!! I'll be doing the same, purchasing a pressure washer this Spring hopefully, foam cannon haha. I love Meguiars' products! Would the Meguiar NXT make the burnt finish on my exhaust fade away?

Pile height is reference to the density and plushness of the fibers in the towel. The term is more commonly used in reference to carpet and rugs.

Is it better to use the shorter/longer pile pad or its just your preference?

Since you don't seem to put much stock in what others have recommended, see what the rest of The Intertubes thinks ...
