    whats the best stuff to make the plastic stips and black parts of the doors and bumpers 'blacker' if that makes sense?

    also i gave my wheels the once over with 'wonder wheels' but didnt put anything on them afterwards, there caked in brake dust yet again... so is there something i should be putting on them afterwards i.e. wax? if so whats good? and should i expect large amounts of brake dust to be on the wheels even such a short amount of time after a full clean?

    I tried searching for this stuff but i think im a bit special with the search button, or it doesnt agree with me.

    Cheers

    we were talking about this in the compacts group a few days back. for your plastic strips treat it with the stuff recommended here

    it looks amazing, but not cheap. Saying that though, the results from what people are saying last a year +.
