Usually use Dr Beasley plastic sealant and it lasts a decent amount of time, so doesn't need doing after every wash.

I have used Gyeon Trim on my Ford Focus. So It gets a regular Bathe+ shampoo and the occasional Wetcoat and or Cure treatment when the rest of the car does. It is a year old and still protecting beautifully.

I use Meguire's all season dressing and it lasts at least one to two months and it does a really nice job of enhancing the trims and masking any signs of aging and gives out a nice semi gloss finish.

When I have the enthusiasm. Its one of those jobs I don't particularly enjoy, unless I'm simply spraying something on

No, as an when required. The 75 does not have much trim to dress.

Dodo juice trim sealant for me, applied once and never needed dressing since.

That is impressive if you did it over a year ago. But if you did it on Christmas Eve then it isn't that good 😉

Bit of Gtech on it, doesn't need doing much.

Wish I'd known about the stuff when I owned my original flavour Ka with plastic bumpers. Used to dress that whenever it started looking really bad, but most products tended to partly wash off whenever it rained and looked worse than faded so I didn't bother much.
