Restoring colour to Mini Radio Plastic

I have a few weird little marks on the plastic of my radio surround.

Its not a scuff as such, but it is faded as if its been rubbed too hard. Any ideas for replacing the colour?

The picture is a stock image with my less than skillful paint skills pointing out the area affected.

There were multiple cosmetic issues when I bought this 'new' car from Mini, they have FINALLY fixed the other bits but I'm reluctant to let them try to restore this..

Thanks in advance!

I would hit that plastic with Koch Chemie Top Star; if it’s dried out and grey, a couple of coats will bring that back to factory black.

If you do try it, you do need to use it twice if you have a neglected dash.

I think KC Refresh Cockpit Care is the same product, but in a 500ml retail bottle.
