    You could try a strong APC solution & give it a good scrub with something like a toothbrush

    If that's doesn't work you might need something like a trim renovator Dave if it's that bad buddy

    Auto Finesse Revive could be the answer for you

    What's an APC solution?
    It's my dad's car, only got it until my new one arrives. But would like to give it him back looking good :)

    APC = All purpose cleaner

    The cheap way is to dilute down some Flash liquid & use that. BUT be careful. If you leave it on the bodywork it will strip wax etc

    If I were you I would dilute some Flash or similar down to 3:1 (three parts water 1 part Flash) and scrub the effected areas with a stiff toothbrush dipped in your solution. Then rinse with water. If that fails try a trim restorer product like I've already mentioned buddy

    I used AF Revive to get AF Tripple (their polish) out of some of the trim on the wife's Yaris. Worked a treat, plus the trim looked as new afterwards.

    I've just scrubbed at it with flash, and washed it. Will see how it looks tomorrow when dry/light :)

    I'd never class an Audi, even an old one as a 'nail'
