    I use that too - on textured trim (bumpy) I use an old scouring pad and it works a treat as the scourer gets in to all the recesses.

    The demo of the more expensve product looks impressive, however, you need to wait at least an hour with most of these products to acurately guage results - ie when it's dry again. Could be worth a punt though if your trim is really bad then £25 is a small price to pay.

    The stuff Ben has recommended is cheaper in the long run though because you only ever have to do it once where as the autoglym stuff wears off within a week..

    7 times the price, 100 times the quality.

    G Techniq worth the outlay all day long

    Bet you that trim restorer doesn't protect the rubber seals on your car...especially frosty weather

    If you want a cheaper alternative for the black strips...

    Kiwi shoe polish, it costs less than a quid and does the trick!!!

    You will need the 2 shoe brushes - one to put on and the other to buff it up....
