A bit expensive, but Wolfgang exterior trim sealant is a good product. It gives a natural black finish, water repellent and has UV blockers.

Not sure if anyone else has tried it or not, but I have always been pleased with the results of "Tire Wet" on plastic parts. I use it on the wife's Yukon plastic bits and it looks much better. This weekend I tried it out on the the PT (Bumpers, mirrors, and even headlights), it looked MUCH better.
Cars never seem to stay clean long here, so I can not verify that it would stand up to repeated washings, but it's worth a try!

Most of the above will not restore the color to faded trim. They may enhance the color though. This is a bit expensive but it wiil restore the black color to trim.
This is a semi permanent dye:

Heading to Detailfest at Autogeek next weekend. Among other things, I am going to check out some of the new rubber/black plastic treatments. I love 303 Aerospace Protectant and they have a new line of products including trim products. I also be checking to see if Eastwood products are worth looking into. They make some big claims with respect to restoring/ resurfacing plastic permanently - with built in UV protection.
We'll see what's out there and perhaps try out some samples.

Try Solution Finish....this stuff works and lasts! I have used it on my Challenger tail light trim 9 months ago and still looks new. Not greasy, small amounts goes a long way.
