What's a good product to restore the look of black exterior plastic pieces? I just bought a used Mini Cooper for my daughter and it has black plastic around the fenders. It looks like someone got some wax on it and I want to make it look black again.

With all products out there under the "car wash" title, I am talking about the ones you add to your wash bucket at about one ounce per gallon type. Which do you think are safe for paint? And what is (if any) the trick to a spot free rinse?

spot free rinse.. well if that's what your after dont worry bout the soaps that's a small element if it first off make sure you clay bar your car atleadt once a year and wax regularly. that's the key ther I clay and carnuba wax x2 a year and do paste wax inbetween that's how I get a spot feee einse now using soft water is another big help but again the seceet is all in paint care not gimmicky additives hope that helps so if ur intrrested I can list the steps and procedures I can lay out fot ya
