you said you used black boot polish before ?  was it so bad that you bought the 20 quid black wow ? or just fancied it ?
just seems like a good cheap idea to me ...no ?

Black shoe polish = cheap but good

Black Wow = Expensive but better

hi detail fans

haven't touched the car since I did the black wowing over a month ago apart from a couple of washes (haven't had the time)

the trim is still holding up very well... the car is filthy after sitting gathering tree pollen for the last week or so but the trim is still clean and 'black' underneath as it were... I won't get a chance to clean it this weekend but when I do I will post unedited pics.

the thing i like about black wow is that it is a cleanser too... so it leaves the plastic feeling really clean and not as though you are covering up or masking over something like the I felt with kiwi.

don't get me wrong though.. kiwi/trim detailer is a good solution but my feeling is that black wow is a better but more expensive solution... I can see me not having to re-apply for a while yet!

I have some Forever black trim dye but after playing with the black wow and some isopropyl alcohol I think I'm going to send it back. :) It's good stuff and goes a hell of a long way.
