Wipe New. Restores and protects, and lasts for a very long time.

Black Wow for sure. It's an amazing little bottle and a little goes a long way. Best product on the market for the Mini black trim!

That's what I use. Discovered it at MOTD. Best thing I've found for the cowl plastic. Lasts a long time too. Apply the Blak with a sponge applicator and after it dries follow it with either the Satn or Gloz depending on how much shine you want.

I used the black Protect Renew a few weeks ago and there many pros and very few cons. This is not a dressing that’s going to wash off after a few washings. There is black pigment and it’s my understanding that it is reintroducing carbon to the faded black trim. The only con is be careful the way you put it on. Buy a few small foam applicators and take your time. Tapeing off the area is a great suggestion as you will see the black if it over-runs onto the paint. The result was dramatic on the R57. Also, anything that has had Armorall on it will need to be throughly cleaned so no presence of the Armorall remains.
