Got a photo?
It's probably anodized aluminum... not much you can do to it but use a mild chrome polish to clean it up, and hopefully remove any mineral deposits on there. Generally with anodized that is stained or spotted, you're out of luck.

One thing you can do is to remove the anodizing and polish the aluminum. It's a little bit work but the results are nicer than buying new trim. Get a bottle of Hair and Grease Remover (drain cleaner) from Home Depot to remove the anodizing then polish the trim with Mother's Mag Wheel Polish or similar. Here's a real low-tech guy who made a video on the method: Polishing Aluminum Trim (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Jdlo-AQoAY).
The only downside is that if you live where there's lots of rain and snow and salt on the roads the bare aluminum will need some attention to keep it looking top notch. Here in Arizona I polish my trim once every year or two.....
