ArmorAll For Exterior Rubber Moulding

The rubber moulding around my windshield and rear window is cracking and fading...

So I tried using this "ArmorAll Outlast Trim & Plastic Restorer"

(Pic attached)

I feel like it didn't do a damn thing as far as the fading. Still looks just as faded.

I've since heard a lot of negative things about ArmorAll products... Do you guys think this is a bad product, or maybe my moulding/trim is just that shot.

Could be both, can't see your moldings, but Armor All is a shit product.

So if you're NOT a fan of ArmorAll:
1) What other product do you recommend instead & WHY?
2) What do you recommend using that product on, in interior or exterior?

Thanks,
George

There is only two products that should be used on rubber trims and moldings...

I haven't had a need to "restore" any moldings in quite a long time. My front windshield seal on my E92 is falling apart, so I ordered a new one. It was roughly 35 bucks from FCP and it takes about an hour to replace. Not sure about the rear, or what car you're talking about. On the E90 and 92, both of those are rubber, and if they're cracking, they're done for...time to replace.
