Any recommendations on the best products to clean the dash and door plastics??
Just got a few persistent scuffs and smears that seem hard to clear.
Thanks.
I get Armorall dash and trim cleaning wipes from Costco - a lot like kiddies wet wipes in a tube that you pull one out as and when you need it - can pull a year's worth of dead skin and wife's hand cream from the leather steering wheel in a minute!

Ever thought of wrapping the black door grabs? Someone on here did a good job of it.

It’s just cheap hard plastic apparently, so Vim and a scouring pad is all it needs probably.*

I use a micro fiber towel dipped in plain hot water, wrung out and then wiped on the surface in question. I do use some leather cleaner and restorer on the steering wheel too, to prevent it going shiny.

I find all the wipes etc just make things shiny over time, hot water and a cloth seems to shift most things.

* Clearly a joke, please do not do this!

Not sure about anyone else, but I find I keep getting marks on the upper sections of the doors (the hard plastic). They almost look like scuffs, no idea where they come from.

I find wiping them with a damp cloth works to an extent, but the panels seem to be mark magnets.

I’ve had more success using a car dash / plastic cleaner / treatment, but make sure you use a mat one

Exactly this. Not managed to shift one of the marks. It’s not grazed so a bit of a mystery. Especially as we are ultra careful.
