    I don't venture into the detailing forum much, so I'm asking this on here.
    What do you guys use to detail the plastic trims on your S3 doors and rear bumper?
    Mine looks a bit tired, despite the rest of the car looking shiney.

    just wax them like you do the paint. Works a treat.

    A heatgun can go wrong if you're not careful.

    Wax simply seals in the dull grey colour.

    Back to Black and shoe polish wear off after 3 days.

    Most people use Meguairs Trim detailer, lasts about 3 weeks.

    WD40 on the window rubbers as trim detailer doesnt soak in...

    I use some T-Cut trim restorer. Works fantastically (even got rid of my sloppy polish stains) and lasts for a good few months or so.

    Clark uses Zymol Vintage on my plastic trim. Seems better than the black to black I used to use....


    I always thought the Meguires Tyre gel worked well and lasts long, as does Autoglym Bumper Care
