restoring faded black pieces?

What product do you use to make those black plastic peices look brand new and shine. Molding like front and rear valence/lower side panels. Long lasting product prefered.

I tried Wipe New (as seen on TV) and I don't think it lasted more than 2 days on the exterior. Its supposed to last years

Back to black should do it. I will probably do it to my exterior parts this weekend

I couldn't imagine that that stuff worked. Kind of just seemed like it was silicone tire shine they were spreading on there.

Not a huge fan, but I redid the lower section of my rear bumper with PlastiDip.. Took 10 mins and its holding steady and looks great. Mirrors, cowl panel and visible portion of the gas tank are next.. It's help well to being hand and pressure washed too

May sound dumb but go to Walmart (cheaper then O'Reillys or Autozone) and pick up a bottle of Meguires Supreme Shine interior protectant. It's a yellow and black bottle. Spray some on a rag and wipe it over all the black trim on your car. I promise you'll love it

It's just a cheap clear coat; it's actually a rehashed version of an old product that was banned from sale because it was a scam back in the '80s. I forget the name of the original product, sorry...something with a Z in it or starting with a Z, it was a stupid name.
If you go to the RipoffReport, you'll find hundreds of entries about WipeNew and Avanto Corp. (the parent company) screwing over consumers.

Seemingly I'm at odds with everyone here. I tried many other products like back to black etc... Only thing that has lasted over a week so far is wipe new.
Rear bumper looks good & we've had two snow totems since I applied it.
