Oy...
This is going to sound really dumb but, If you plan to keep the vehicle for...lets say 5-10 years, when the time comes to replace exhaust parts-don't skimp...go stainless steel
OK, it used to be people would keep their cars for 2-3 years max
Now it's like 7 years (avg)
In my area, you end up replacing your whole exhaust system 3-5 times in bits and pieces over 10 years

Wash, clean, polish, and wax every 3 months
I mean really, underneath and all
A good 4 step system works well
Wash, clean (paste or bar cleaner), polish, and protection(wax-not a "cleaner-wax")

That would help
