The plastics on our '08 Fit look a bit worn, but honestly not near as bad as some newer cars that I see. A coat of that Meguiars stuff and it looks good for a month or so.

As the previous and current owner of 80's and 90's Mustangs, I know what bad plastic can look like. With those it's best to just do a good prep job and paint. No amount of care keeps them fresh looking.

Cover All. I recently found it at O'reillys. Works really well on tires and lasts. Great on trim too.
