Chrome like material

I would like to have a material on some of my objects to look like chrome. I have experimented a bit with this in 3ds max and exported, but it does not look good at all… Are there any of you who can give me some tips on this.

The object which shoud look like chrome/silver is a piston on a hyudaulic cylinder, so its just a simple cylinder geometry. It could just be generated in code rather than imported as a .jme file
