E93 Dash Fading

Hi all...I did a search and couldn't quite find what I was looking for. I have an '09 E93 and noticed that my dash has started fading. There is a small area on the center part that has gone white.

Is there any way to fix/save this?

Thanks in advance!

put the top down and park it in the sun for a few days, let the rest of the interior get to a point where it matches

voila you now have white interior

It won't fix your current dash, but for future vehicles look into ceramic tinted windows and windshield. They're a necessity in areas with high UV exposure if you want to avoid fading.

Sometimes as I'm passing BMW dealers in the summer and they have the top down on all their E93s in the beaming 100 degree sun I just wonder how can they be so careless towards the next owner.

There's no way to restore that to black other than just using a rejuvenator and caring for it a bit more now.

Try this stuff and see if it will help with the fading, may take several coats, let it sink in

If it is too far gone, then you can try dying the area or the whole dash with this

1. What part of the dash are you referring to?
2. What is the original color?
3. Can you post a picture?
