it's a matter of making sure no prints get on it and you don't use anything to abrasive to make swirl marks on it when you polish it.

A lint free cloth that has been washed first and autoglym metal polish seems to do the trick for me

I gave up completely after a while, just used to wipe it with a cloth with a bit of WD on it. Looked good enough for me, but not perfect. Hence I shaln't be having a blinged engine bay again, too lazy!

depends on how engine bling and clean pipes are under there.
And you have to be intricate in some areas and make sure you leave no traces of cleaner

autoglym metal polish might be a bit too abrasive for highly polished stainless, i use it on my exhaust but only because it gets seriously covered in cack. underbonnet bling would probably only ever get watermarks on it so what i do is give it a quick wipe over with a WET chamois then either a coat of meguiars gold class or autoglym super resin polish, works a treat! :L
