Advice on restoring this trim.

Need some advice about this trim between my doors, I've only had the car a couple of weeks and I'm trying to dress the trim as it appears discolored.
I wiped down thoroughly with apc and previously applied AF revive which made no difference and yesterday tried nanolex rejuvenator, this worked great on all the other trim and bumpers but still not covering door trim, any ideas?
Photos show both sides of the car.

Looks the same as on my GTA. I, too, have tried almost everything.

The best I have achieved is with the Koch Chemie PlastStar stuff but it is still not perfect.

On the GTA the trim appears to be a bit of tape attached to the door and I am considering using wrap to replace it.

This what you need. Expensive but well worth the price

Thanks for the advice chaps, sounds pretty unanimous, out of interest how does the solution finish differ from products like the nanolex, is its chemical make up quite different?

Solution finish is a trim restorer so think of it as a dye rather than a dressing

If you do get sf, then don’t forget to get something to seal it like car pro DLUX or platinum trim.

And wear gloves!!
