This is on my short list of products I found and love on Detailed Image. I think Chemical Guys products are great and this is a great example. I got this after continually reading about it being so good and the reviews are true. This works and is amazing.

If you don't have this and are considering buying it, stop wondering, buy it, and start putting it on your ride and the only thing you will regret is not having bought this sooner!

I love this product! It works great for places that is hard to reach, i used it in my engine bay, plastic grill insert in my bumper, splash guards, wheel wells, etc. It goes on super easy, gets great coverage and last a while. Since you can use other protectors on bigger plastic pieces, you only use this on small things like hoses and such so this can lasts a while.

Its amazing to me the difference this product makes. Having the black bits really be black makes them stand out, especially on my older vehicle. Easy to use and effective.

I intentionally waited a month after using this product before posting a review. Lets face it, most of the black plastic restorers don't last more than a week or two and/or wash away after getting rained on. This Chemical Guys product is by far the best I have used and the plastic still looks great after a month. I used it on the lower windshield shroud on my 2008 Honda Element SC, which grayed much faster/worse than the other plastic on the vehicle. It restored it to a nice deep black and matches the rest of the plastic almost perfectly.
Pros: Aerosol application is very easy, and has enough in the can for plenty of applications. Overspray was easy to remove and didn't leave any odd-looking residue.
Suggestion for use: It is a VERY fine mist and must be used inside of a garage. Even a tiny amount of wind will blow it all over the place. It operates like a can of spray paint.

Great for wheel wells and hoses in the engine compartment! I wouldn't use it on my tires. I sold on the Tuff Shine clear coat.

What a great product! I was skeptical at first because I didnt want to harm the paint or glass, but this spray is a clear spray, and any overspray wipes right off. A must have for exterior trim. I used this on my windshield wiper platform, (some got on the wipers, and i realized the wipers look awesome, so I did the wipers too), my side mirrors, exterior trim, and my weatherstripping. This stuff is awesome.

One of the best dressing products I ever used. I've already order several of these and recommended to several friends when they ask me how was I able to restore rubber or areas that are suppose to be black. Will leave a slightly oil finish but you can quickly wipe it down with a microfiber towel to achieve that rich deep black finished. I use 303 aerospace protectant and apply this to finish off all rubber or black plastic pieces for my car restoration project. Finish last longer than Black Wow. If you're looking for tire dressing then I would recommend to go with something else but for all moldings, rubber, or plastic it works great!

I had to check to see why this product wasn't 100% so I read the one review that read no to not buying this product again and I know why. You do not have to wipe you just spray and walk away like it says. Maybe it is an update forumla with the name change but regardless I have used black on black and fade to black and it is MUST have in the detailing supplies and to use with every detail. I have seen results last as long as a few weeks to almost a month before needing to be re-applied. Results vary with weather and other conditions. Awesome stuff DI and CG

I used this on a 200 BMW that had some very faded trim and it really brought the black out. I also used it on some hoses under the hood and the car looks very good.

I'd have to agree with what someone else said - felt like I received a half-empty can...? Stuff does work really well, but I think I'll stick with 303.

Pros: Works as well as any dressing I've found. Has the advantage of being a spray-type dressing. Great for engine bay hoses or tough to reach areas.

Cons: Takes some skills to be able to spread evenly. Have had to spray then wipe to get an even coating.

Used this for the first time today on my wheel wells and a few spots under the hood. It did an excellent job of returning the black plastic to a true black. The only trouble is that because it's aerosol, it's difficult to apply when it's a bit windy.

This product is "ok". Not really thrilled about it. I used on the wheel wells of my wife's CR-V. The can doesn't feel like it was completely full when I took out of the box.

Nice, nice, nice

Perfect for engine detailing and black grill work. The aerosol spray feature is ideal for these purposes. Works very well in place of 303, or in conjunction with 303. Really restores faded black plastic. Highly recommended.

I really like this stuff. I've used it on my own car and customers cars with great results. Everyone always asks how I got their trim so dark and new looking again. Definitely recommend this to restore any faded plastics and rubbers.

This product was great! I will be purchasing it again when I run out, great for engine bay. Really exposes and shines the black trim/hoses/covers.

Looks wet all day long, but if it does get wet for real, it will fade some. Overall A++++

Wow, what a difference! Used to dress wheel wells....suggest you treat 3, and then go back and look at the untreated well from a distance....the difference is jarring, and you'll run back to finish the 4th wheel well!

Great product! I got it for free with recent promotion but will definitely buy it again.
I used it to dress the door sill trims, hood vent grill and trim underneath the wipers on E46 M3. The look brand new. I tried with small section on the dashboard trim and I think it is too shinny to my taste. I will compare it with 303 aerospace protectant which I just ordered later.

The product shows fabulous results in seconds. Unfortunately, the fade returns in two days if the vehicle is exposed to California sun. I have a car lot with a cute Mini displayed up front. The lower moldings are faded bad, what was once a flat black is now almost white. I followed the instructions, spray and wipe, spray again, wipe again. Two days later, Fade is Back!

This stuff is great. I used it in a detail of a 96 4runner that had some really neglected and faded trim. I gave the fade to black a try and was floored by the results. The trim looked good as new. I showed my wife, and she swore I had just replaced the parts with new ones. This stuff is awesome and has found a permanent spot in my detailing arsenal.

Great product! I used this on my rear diffuser and it brings its true black color back to life and lasts too. Also drys easly so if any dust starts to accumulate a quick brush off will remove it and leave it looking like it did when you first sprayed it. Also bought a bottle for my buddy who has a Chevy Avalanche...he used it on all his black exterior plastic and loved it...wants me to order him 2 more bottles.

Absolutely sensational product. I don't know how I lived without this in my arsenal. What has previously been said is all true...phenomenal to use in the engine compartment on all plastic and rubber. Saves time and energy while giving results that frankly are unattainable with any other product I've used since the spray allows you to reach ALL places.

I use this product to blacken or darken wheel wells. It makes the wheel wells disappear by making them darker. This product is as important to the appearance of the car as anything I use. Bad wheel well appearance can ruin an otherwise well detailed car, but this product helps the wheel wells simply fade out of the picture allowing you to see the tires, rims and the rest of the car.

This stuff is incredible. The guy who said he would not buy it again clearly did not try it in the engine bay. I used a simple soap wash in my engine bay, let it dry, and put on this stuff. It looks brand new. the hoses are glossy black and the plastic is a deep, low gloss black that just looks fabulous. It is an absolute atrocity that they do not charge more for this.

This is an amazing product which is very simple to use. I sprayed some into the areas of the engine bay which I could not reach by hand and also on the hoses and other various plastic covers. The results were amazing. Each piece is shiny and looks like it is brand new.
It looks especially good on the hoses. You need to get this product and keep it in your kit.

I absolutely love this product! I used it in my engine bay and it completely restored the color to everything! I let the first coat set on for a few minutes, then applied another coat and allowed it to sit a few minutes before wiping it off. It leaves everything with deep color and it is not greasy. I also used it on my wheel wells, hatch seal/trim, side view mirror plastic, windshield wipers, and it really amazed me. I definitely recommend this to anyone!

This is one of the few products that went beyond my expectations. I used it on the black plastic inserts in the grille of my Dodge Magnum. They came out looking like new and have stayed that way for several weeks now. This is great stuff.

I use Fade 2 Black for the wheel wells. Nothing ruins a car's appearance more than off color wheel wells. They now look completely black which sets off the tires, rims and the rest of the car beautifully. I used to get very frustrated with wheel wells not looking right but this stuff took care of that even in direct sunlight. I just ordered 4 more cans.

This product isn't really designed for merely tires. I use it for critical rubber and plastic situations calling for longevity. Consider the plastic cowling under your wipers, the plastic engine components, gas cap area, bumpers. It just doesn't do much to tires in old or poor condition, so don't use it there.
