    Im after putting the black colour back into the skirts and bumper trim on my x5.
    Ive heard that linseed oil is good for this.

    As well as the various off the shelf products available, you could try smoothe peanut butter.

    I imagine linseed oil would just make it look greasy i reckon.

    Back in the day (according to my old man) cheap cola used to do the trick for bringing trim back to black, not sure how true this is or how senile my dad is gone

    Thirsty work I bet.......

    Get the ROLA-COLA out then !!!!!

    I have tried smooth peanut butter and it does work a treat, must be the oil in it.

    Also, I can recommend the Autoglym plastic and rubber spray, lasts wuite long.

    Cheers

    Hi, It's Autoglym Bumper Care for me. The green gell like stuff and the AG Vinyl and Rubber Care is great too as it can also be used on interior trim.
