    armourall dash wipes do a good job with een coverage, though personally I dont like the ultra-shine ones, sometimes a good bowl of soapy (exterior car shampoo), and a dampened cloth can provide a more factory look.

    I use Autoglym Interior Cleaner - gives the dash a matt finish.

    Can use it on fabrics too - has brought up my Sparco Seats mint

    Can't be doing with the silicon residue which is left over after most cleaners - really greasy to the touch

    If you dont want a shiny silicon style finish you cant go wrong with sonax satin dash cleaner. Its what Vaux use in teh showrooms. Your local dealer should have it in stock, its in a silver & blue spray bottle. Its top stuff. But you cant go wrong with meguiars or auto glym. they are the daddies. But for dash..... try the sonax... looks as its meant to and smells like a showroom car
