    I noticed that the plastic on my center intake hood bezel was fading. That didn't take long. I guess this will be a warranty issue when I go back to the dealer. The plastic can't handle the Florida sun? No plastic product seems to correct it.

    Already? Wow, that's not good. Mine has a small spot that looks like a stain, but I can't seem to get it off. It looks like it's in the plastic...doesn't bother me enough to make an issue out of it, but if it gets worse, then we will have a problem. I hope they replace it for you.

    I found a replacement for $15 at Steve White Motors. I think I will spend more money on gas driving there and back, then if I just went out and bought one.

    Why not paint it?

    I painted my hood extractors but not due to a fading issue. My center piece looks OK, but I do use Trim Shine on it almost everyday.

    Have you seen that product called Detail Doctor? I used that stuff on the wheels on my Beemer and it worked pretty good. Just an idea, it worked on my fender wells too. But probably not a good idea for anything matte or satin finished.

    Paladin06 and SinisterKitty,

    Thank you for the tip. I will give both of them a try.

    Krylon Fusion paint is great and very easy to apply. I've painted some black plastic/textured pieces for various vehicles and I was impressed with the results.

    Have the same spot you describe on mine. Mine looks a little shiny in one spot.
