meguiar's makes a great black vinyl renewer, but you have to redo it everytime you clean your car, its the same stuff that is used for the dashboard and tires, the more layers you apply the nicer it will look and shinier it will be. i have never had a problem with it either, its incredible
the exact name of the product is "Meguiars natural shine vinyl and rubber protectant" it costs about 5-7 bucks try that.

yup the mother's back to black is nice and cheap and it works great...plus it can withstand a bit of rain...so it's not that hard to clean afterwards...

ya back to black can work wonders. I found it can be easily applied with a cheepo spong. The rectangular type that sells for like $3 for 10 or so. This way you have an edge to your applicator making very little mess onto your paint or other unwanted areas. I also use sponges to apply wax and other such protectants. I think they're a good idea and can save you a few extra bucks to spend on your car for some other things.
