For little more than the cost of a little less 'butter in your snack-wich, I use the peanut butter, and than cleans like a champ! I'm in the South Florida sun too, and no fading once it does its magic. It truly cleans the wax off. Maybe PB and vinylex for protection? Yummy .
My tries with peanut oil gets the wax white streaks gone, but they come back fast if it rains alot.
Getting the bulk of the wax covered with any oil will work, and it looks good for a few days. The main thing seems to be keeping the oils on/in the plastic.
I'm using Mothers - "Back to Black" which does pretty good

This stuff looks like it would be a winner for MINIs. I'm going to get some and try it.
Any one familiar with this stuff or used it??
I use Forever Black on my plastic trim. It supposedly re-dyes the plastic. Whatever it does, it works great, and the best part is that it lasts through numerous car washes before you need to do it again.
First, I'll state that I'm a 303 user, and happy so far.
Now, here's a less-than-likely source for 303 you might have in your neighborhood -- REI. Yep, Recreational Equipment Incorporated.
They keep it in the kayak section, for treating said marine portage devices.
12(?) and 16-oz sizes, I believe.
Finally, a note about peanut butter -- it rocks! Just remember to clean thoroughly, and you won't get squirrel footprints on the cladding from little buggers trying for that last smidgen of buttery goodness you missed when you last washed your MINI.
I've been using Mother's "Back to Black" and am NOT happy with it, dulls in about a week in Nevada, I was going to try something else and will try the Vinylex. I've used 303 on a Miata vinyl top and it lasted pretty well but had a film which transferred to the window when the top was folded. Don't know if it would attract dust.
