I use AutoGlym bumper shine. Put it on weeks ago and still looking great! Mind you, the car does get put in my garage at night.

show polish is good but if there really grey...they wont stay black long!! and a hairdryer wont give enough heat!! A heat gun is whats needed! (and great care!)

I worked for Wurth years ago and picked up quite a few of their products like lubricants, carb cleaners, Rust treatment products, etc etc...................I would recommend their stuff to anyone.
I use their product which comes in a toothpaste like tube you rub the black paste into your bumpers and skirts and sweet jesus its not faded in months!!
I keep my motor outside all year round.
Try the link!!
