Cleaning the plastic trims.

I know this has been mention and posted before. I have seen a post on it. I just cant seem to find the thread anymore.

I know there was a product presented here that will renew the finish on the plastic trim around the X5. The sideskirts, the front and rear bumper plastic trim.

Over time, I got wax on the plastic and now it looks white and dirty. I've tried to rub it off and it still won't get clean.

Please recommend me something... Thanks

I mentioned this on another thread, but I use a 2" medium bristle brush and silicone tire shine. Trust me, it works awesome. The silicone will remove the whitish marks along w/ making everything nice and shiny black.
