I'm considering having mine sprayed gloss black tbh every product I'v tried wears off after a day or two. I don't think the heat from the exhaust helps much either

Gtechniq C4 without a doubt. Treated the mass of black plastic trim my Mini had and saved me from buying all new plastics. Prep properly by cleaning the dirt well and then strip with IPA before applying the c4. You can then forget about having to do it again.

Yep Gtechniq C4, but Autofinesse's trim restore is very good but Gtechniq is in a different league

Either gtechiq c4 or auto finesse revive will do the job perfectly :happy2:

Another one for Gtechniq C4. incidentally Gtechniq C1, C4 and C5 are all the same product so it can be used for any of the uses the 3 are sold for  :happy2:

You can also use Gtechniq T1 which is for tyre and trim dressing, won't last very long but gives it a nice satin finish and is fine for a quick top up on the finish after a wash etc.

It wouldn't be fun if it was easy, I just wish it wasn't this much fun.
