+1 on the Meguire's Detail Spray.. .. works well on all exterior trim. And. . seems to last and reduces durt accumulation to quite a degree.
I also notice that if I use it regularly, the next time I run it through a car wash, there is little or no film left on the paint finish. If I skip using it awhile, I can get a dark film if I run my finger over the paint even after just washing.

If I use the Detailer regularly. . . no dirty film left after a car wash.

Re: Shiny plastic parts

On the money JayTee! The Meguires Quick Detail almost insures a film free wash and bright shine for quite a while after regular use. Also makes the wood interior trim in the Bimmer just gleam. I love the stuff and find I only need to do a "real" wax job, (Meguire's Gold of course) every six to eight months to keep the cars in my garage looking pretty. And I remember hand waxing a car with paste in the 60's and 70's....never looked as good and worked my a-- off every time I did it.

But then, we didn't have magical paints of today and clearcoats back then. Just elbow grease.

Re: Shiny plastic parts

Good call on waxing your wheels. Helps keep brake dust from sticking. Just make sure you don't use the same rags and towels on your paint. Brake dust particles will leave fine scratches.
