    The black rubbery plastic in the lower drivers door card (where the pocket/map holder etc) is has been lightly scuffed by a careless dealer/techie or the SO - I thought it was just dirt, but it still leaves a visible mark; that material is very prone to this, and it looks lighter as a result.

    Anyone recommend a product to bring back the colour without making it worse. Obviously can't see it when the door is shut. Kinda wasted my time begin careful with it myself all these months.

    Cheers.

    Hi there,

    If the surface is black, like you said, you could try and use some shoe polish. I've used it on my car and it works a treat.

    Put some of the liquid shoe polish (I use the black liquid Kiwi) on a small de-mister pad and rub onto the scuffed area in a circular motion. When I have tried it, it dries to exactly the same colour as the rest of the area, and yes exactly the same colour!!

    Also you might think that it will come off if you rub the same area again, but no. No matter how you rub the same area, none of the shoe polish comes off on your cloth.

    I hope this works for you.

    Brilliant idea... You mean that 'quick polish, or scuff cover up' i use on my shoes when i'm too lazy to use the solid shoe shine wax and brushes? Are you sure it doesn't make the panel too glossy? Will try it on a discreet area. Thanks.

    Yes, exactly!!!

    I mean the quick polish not the scuff cover up.

    And no, it doesn't make the panel glossy but... if you are patient, careful and calm you can't even tell.

    All the best...

    P.S I would be interested to see some before and after shots...
