    what do people use to polish up the under bonnet plastic covers, iv tried just normal bumper back to black, and halfords plastic polish, but both seem to just dry off with the engine heat and go back to the dull grey dirty colour

    I would be the same. I only discovered it was any good under the bonnet by accident. Was surprised how long it lasts...

    Bullsh*t spray, also known as WD40 or something similar, that always works on the plastic

    You will never use anything else again after trying this.
