Piano black grille

Does anyone know if you can use polishes or waxes on the piano black grille that comes with the 2013 Titanium? I always use liquid glass polish on my car but didn't know if the grille is just shiny plastic or if it also has paint with clear coat.

I don't see why not, but just to make sure, try a little in a hidden area first to see how the grill reacts to the polish/wax.

you can polish the piano black on the grill and side pillars with a polish and use wax to protect it will not discolor or fade the black. I would do it by hand on the grill use meguires ultimate polish and a high quality microfiber applicator pad and towel for removal of the residue. then wax away
