alfa 156 door plastic fading

HI everyone,

This is my first message since registering so any advice would be very welcome!!

I bought my alfa 156 selespeed just under a year ago. Very happy with it but the only problem I have is that the plastic by the window on both of the front doors has faded into a light grey colour which looks a bit shabby. I have tried a couple of 'back to back' products which only have a very short term effect.

Does anyone know if you can purchase new ones? and if so where from?

many thanks

Hi Rob....those bits of the 156 are known for fading...usual places for replacements I guess....dealers, indies, ebay etc....other folk have resorted to colour coding the whole mirror assembly, so takes ya choice

Yes put two coats of the stuff on if it doesn't work try a black car polish but read the bottle and make sure it doesn't do anything funky to plastic . I could do with some myself mine are a little faded.
