cleaning ..............plastic

Hi

Does anyone know a good product to use on the black boards under the doors..... I don't want to use something too shiny, but after I wash my X5 the black plastic under the doors looks very dull............... thanks for any inputs... I would prefer to use products from Maguire if possible

Mine looked really dull so i scrubbed it and it looks a lot better. You might want to give "Exterior Trim Detailer" from Meguiar's a try. I bought some but i only tried a little. I dont believe it is too shiny. It just makes it look renewed. I have seen it in autopart stores or you can order it off their website.

if you went by that picture; but that picture is in no way accurate. This product doesn't even come close to appearing like that picture.

It's a great product sold @ BMW dealers although i don't buy it there.

I use to use Mothers Back to Black which works pretty good but now I use either Adams VRT or Black Wow which are both sold by Phil at Detailers Domain, which both work alot better.
