I baught this stuff to make black trim black again... I forget what it's called but if someone wants to know i'll go find the name for you. Anyway, since my car is fairly old the black trim is now more like ashy faded black. looked crappy but after this stuff it looks almost brand new... here's an example... all my door handles looked like the be4 shot.

I've seen some things at properautocare for that stuff. Some of them are dyes and others just have some really good cleaners that get into the ruts and clean it out. Looks good! Now go get yourself a good polymer polish so you don't get wax buildup on them next detail!

AZ325Ci is on a distinguished road
i hear that the Bumper & Trim Reconditioner from Griot's Garage works wonders for restoring your black trims.

Wow, it brings back the original shine and rubs off those annoying keyholes too!

The stuff at Proper Autocare is called "black again". I tested it on my "97 Accord and it works great.
