2005 X5 dash and door fade

When I got my 2005 X5, the previous owner never put on any dressing on the doors, dash, and center console.... Now there are fade spots that really annoy me..... What can I use to restore these to make them look new without ruining the parts or making them greasy?

I would probably use Adam's VRT for that.

It will even out the fade, wipe the excess off to your liking.

The more you use the shinier it will be the less you use the more matte it will finish.

This is what I used on my X5.
