Weathered rubber outer strips.. How to liven them up?

In reference to the weather strips around the windows.. What can I use to rejuvenate them?

They look rather weathered, even the rear screen seal which I only replaced about 12 months ago!

I've tried gummi pflege and found it left it blotchy and didn't really help.

Did I use this product wrong or should I be using a specific cleaner product??

Any help is appreciated as BMW want a fortune for new parts!!!

cheers guys, I have got some of the AG stuff knocking around somewhere so may give it a bash.

Also I'm looking closely at getting some AF revive, think it'll be an ideal allrounder.. still torn between that and carpro perl though!!

agree with this.

A really under rated product imo.

Another good one is Maxolen blue star A-Z.

Have you given them a jolly good clean prior to applying any treatment/dressings?

A good scrub with APC before drying thoroughly is always a good bet, otherwise you could just be sealing in crud, hence the blotching.
