    I am a new proud owner of a Volvo C30. I want to ask if somebody know
    any product to apply on the body plastic parts to protect them from
    sunlight and delay the "aging".

    Thanks in advance!!

    It depends on which plastic.
    Advice #1 - DO NOT use Armorall, STP Son of a Gun, etc., as these have
    silicone and will eventually destroy rubber and vinyl. Same can be
    said for most "economy priced" tire treatments. In regards to
    Armorall, I know from experience having ruined the interior of a VW
    and a seat cover on a motorcycle before I was wised up.

    Best I have found so far is "303 Aerospace Protectant." Works on
    fibergalss, vinyl, rubber, clear plastic, headlight lenses, taillight
    lenses, etc., etc. No silicone, no residue.

    Check their webite at
    They have a number of products and the ones I have tried all work as
    advertised. heck.. I bought a gallon of the 303 AP!
