one of my friends who has a E30 325es put sun tan oil(not lotion) on all of his black trim. it does work good, it makes it really shiny.

Hmm... Sounds good using Sun Tan Oil, but does it work on the Plastic Trims? I'm not so sure trying yet but I will go try it on a car in the Junk Yard. Maybe I can test it that way or you can.

I've tried using black boot polish on black trims on several cars, it works but be careful to wipe off excess and on the paint. It works.

It can't be that much cheaper than something meant for the trim?
