    Hi guys

    So I cleaned the interior plastics with soap and water but they still look a bit faded. Any product suggestions? Someone has suggested I use olive oil but I'm hesitant to say the least.

    I use these wipes, they are very good and give the plastic a Matt finish which is ideal

    you can get them from other places too like halfords (about the only thing I do buy from there)

    Interesting maybe I could try that on the interior. I can't believe no one else's plastics have faded.

    it works on the exterior plastics so i dont see why it wont work on the interior, and it dosent say you cant use it on them

    It is very good, and what i have done with it on the outside, it has made it look brand new again and has last for a few months now

    The best thing about it is, it does not leave a resdiue behind like most of the sprays and wipes
