      My car as a beige interior. Does anyone know of the best product to remove dirt & grime from the beige plastic interior on the door sills? Winter sucks!

      Use a good all purpose cleaner like Meguiar's Carpet/Interior Cleaner. Spray on panel and agitate with soft nylon bristle brush. Wipe dry with Cotton or micro fiber towel. Most Dubs have a mat european finish on the interior....so applying a protectant will bring the sheen up to either satin or shiney. You can use a good protectant like Meguiar's Vinyl Rubber Cleaner Conditioner M40 apply it with a foam applicator and allow to dry. Then lightly buff panels with a slightly damp cotton towel to tone down the sheen. This will leave behind UV protection, richen the appearance of the vinyl, and leave a mat finish. Hope this helps

      I have the biege in my 03 B5.5 and a 6:1 ratio of water / Woolite does a nice job on it and is also recommended by Lexus and Cadillac for leather cleaning.
