Mine have always been a bit marked and actually look a bit poop! I know scratches are probably there to stay but is there anything people use to make them look better??!

Thanks,

James.

Thank you, i'll give it a go. Any particular cleaner? I have a Meguires one that I do the exterior black trim with, so that may do the trick?

well i use auto glym i have the whole valet kit but fairy liquid is good to use to actually clean the plastic interior bits and the exterior come to think of it especially if you get polish on the black trim.

i find that if you just use trim cleaners it does not always remove the grime and then you get polish marks on the trims very frustrating!!

Yes I was going to say just warm water, a mild soap and a smallnail brush or something. Unfortunately the pattern nature of the trim means that dirt does get stuck right in. Think it is important to make sure that the seat backs are then dried properly. I don't normally put anything on my trim as I don't like the shiny plastic look, so no advice there! Razz

Didn't do the seats in the end. Did everything else though!! Tried a new leather to dry the car off. Not sure if I like it though but did get rid of the water marks. Really needs a good polish!! :scared:

Thanks,

I assume you mean the scratches have taken the colour off Question A trick I've used on other items is a felt tip pen, the correct colour of course lol!
