    hey yes i sure have. 8 years old on my mazda 181k and the dask and black panels still are looking good to me anyway i dont find them grey ive used this for the past few years

    before that i used the plastic cleaner that canadian tire sells. but i find the 3d stuff to be a much better quality then canadian tire stuff and its so much cheaper when you buy the larger containers almost everything dilutes down so it lasts a while.

    if your ever out near orangeville or brampton let me know bring a bottle i can give you some to try.

    Just buy one that is not oily. It will make the inside of your windshield oily when it gets super hot.

    Big plus for 303 Aerospace Protectant. Been using it for years, definitely one of the best out there.

    Leaves a natural look, not all glossy or shiny.

    Totally. I even use it on the leather seats and makes them look like day 1 - if this is even leather or not.

    Personally I'm not happy with 303. Takes a fair bit of buffing to get it to a truly matte finish, so I'm switching to Nextzett Cockpit Premium once I finish what remains of my bottle, and you can use it on all hard plastics and soft-touch surfaces (just not leather, basically).

    Well it could be you are using too much product.

    I spray two or three squirts on a microfiber cloth, fold it on itself to dampen it fully, and then wipe it on whatever surface. It may have a slight sheen when you first apply it but will go to matt in no time...That is my experience anyway.

    I also use it on all rubber seals, such as doors etc and even on wiper blades to keep them like new and it works amazing.
