    Hi

    Anyone spare a few thoughts on good cleaning and shining tips on the black plastic dash on an e36 compact (or any bmw for that matter).

    I usually wipe it down with a damp soapy cloth then to get it shine use some back to black but it takes a lot of the stuff which is expensive.

    Any shiny plastic sprays around??

    Also i have grey velour seats but you get like wierd patches on them, dont know how to describe it its like a dark outlining patch but inside the dark outline its the same colour. If that makes sense

    Any ideas???

    I use magnuiars endurance, you only need alittle bit and the best thing is that it doesn't leave a sticky residue. You apply it with a sponge leave it for a while then get a clean cloth (lint free) and and buff it up, comes up nice and shinny , i actually use it on all my black parts on my car (Rubbers, dash, door cards, wheels{keeps them looking as if you just bought them} etc)

    as far as your seats go i'd say just give them a good shampoo, i had similar sort of myterious patches on my seats, probably from people spilling stuff on them but i used some autoglym interior shampoo, gave the seats a good scrub then vacuumed and left to dry properly and they came out good as new!!

    shinney, not good, the plastic is surpose to be a mat finish and in imo back to black is horrible stuff, leaves a greasey finish,

    i use autoglym interior shampoo everywere, it leaves no stickyness on the plastic and is great for cleaning carpets, seats, etc, but if you like your plastic shinney, use autoglym bumper care, a tiny bit goes a long way and it does a great job

    back to black stains your skin to the point you've got to scrub it off so god knows what it must do to the plastic in your car! lol!
