Sedan Rear "Grill"

1284 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  BigE
I have a Titanium EX Sedan and i noticed that the rear lower "grill" (for lack of a better word) is starting to look washed out and has streaks on it from i guess fading. It sort of goes away when i wash the car but comes back as soon as i dry it. Is anyone else experiencing this or have any suggestions to fix it? Thanks!

It's called a diffuser, but go to the link at the bottom of my post. I've had mine sine October and it hasn't faded, but mine's also always garaged.

Use mothers "back to black"
^^ I would recommend Mothers too.
^^ I would recommend Mothers Back to Black as well since it's what I use. Next time you wash the car, take a microfiber cloth and with your soapy water, give the diffuser a good scrub. After you've dried your car and you've got all the water out of the gap betwen the diffuser and bumper, use some B to B and a soft cloth and rub it into the diffuser. Wipe it smooth and even and then you're done. You can go a couple of washes now without having to redo it if you remember to wipe it dry after each wash.


PS. check out the video of my rear LEDs and you'll see a diffuser that was just washed but no B to B this time. I've had the car 6 months and have over 17,000 kms on it already.
