Dashboard colour restorer / UV protection

My new V6 has the "red style" dash/doorcards and it is a little faded.

What is the best product to protect it from UV and if possible restore some of the original colour?

I know restoration is a long shot. To be honest, the fading isn't too bad; it has held up well over the years.

I had a quick look on DW and the best option looks to be this:

Sonus Cockpit Detailer Car Interior Cleaner & Protectant

It is meant to be matte as well, which is what I want.

Does anyone know of any other products I can look at before I take the plunge?

Thanks guys.

Yes, I highly recommend Aerospace 303. It gives a completely matt (like new) finish and has extremely good UV properties. I have tried many different products over the years and IMHO this is by far the best. You can buy it online from many dealers in the UK eg. cleanyourcar.co.uk

Anyone from Ireland needing 303 Aerospace. Check out PilotShop.ie Only €5 delivery charge, cheaper than the 12.95 wanted by cleanyourcar.co.uk

Yes, that looks very good. Don't know how I missed that one.

Thanks for the tip.

I second Springboks suggestion. He recommended Aerospace 303 to me and I used it for the first time last week and it leaves by far the best, matt finish of any trim treatment I've used.
