    g-techniq c4 permanenet trim restorre:
    http://gtechniq.com/shop/3s-for-cars...trim-restorer/

    i have some pics somewhere, will try and find them for you,

    basically this stuff will return your grey and tired trim back to its orignal black, and will not wash off like any other product, i done mine about 4 months ago now rain, sun and washing have not altered how it looks,

    its expensive, but worth it

    No denying the g-techniq stuff is a top product but it comes at a premium!

    Berry Blast Endurance Trim & Tyre Gel from forum vendor AutoBrite gets a cracking review from forum Mod Martyn.D
    and is a fraction of the cost..http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...d-trim-t81632/

    i cant find my pics, i posted them in a thread on here, but dont have them on pc any more,

    but it is exactly like the video, from grey and silvery to black new looking trim with minimal effort,

    you literally clean the trim with ispohnyl alchol, rub someof the c4 on then wipe it off with a mf ... job done

    i will take you some pics of my trim later on to post up

    all the silcon based sprays, such as back to black runs with rain and evenually wash off to leave the trim how it was,

    c4 does not run in the rain, when you touch the trim after it feels dry an like there is nothing on there at all

    I dont do anything with the trim that it is on anymore, i wash the car and dry it, the trim looks perfect

    it is expensive and you dont get a whole lot tbh but i dont the whole black trim under the windscreen wipers, the black trim on the mirror housings, washer nozzles, areial bass and it was pretty much all gone

    I masked all the paint arround it, I got some on the windscreen and its dried hard, I wouldn't want it on the paint

    With the stuff you get 4 or 5 little round pads, that are some sort of gause

    You then put a small amount on the pad and wipe it on, it looks like itsd wet when its on the trim. Take your mf wipe the trim and that's it

    You have to bin the mf after as the stuf dries on it and and makes it all rough
