It's a product by Blue Coral that claims to be safe on paint, as well as plasitc, vinyl, leather, and al other car finishes.

I will be trying it as a door handle treatment. I suspect, as it is supposed to be good for the paint as well, that it will be a better choice than the other treatments available as it will nort run, and can be blended into the finish after application.

This is just an experiment. Please share your experiences with this product.

It does a good job on the dash, vinyl and the cladding along the bottom. So so on black rubber and it looked too cloudy to use on the paint so it haven't.

I use it on everything rubber/plastic outside the car, the results are great as you will see. It really does a great job on the black bumpers on the 500E, keeping from looking weathered as such. Best of all, you only need to apply every month or two to keep up the look and protection.

it's alright. works good on lower black exterior trim pieces. don't put it on paint. Overall since I have gone through a couple bottles in the past, it's just another armor all product that's kinda greasy feeling. I'm always trying new stuff, so I'll let you know what I find that's better. So far meguiars plastic cleaner(or something like that) lasts pretty good, but doesn't leave as much of a shiny look on what you apply it to. Also, it has no greasy feeling what so ever.

The Point Was...

That so many other products we use to bring back the black on our door handles and trim parts have a tendency to run down the paint when they get wet, and make the car look like crap when they leave the "zebra stripes" behind.

The implied benefit of Black Magic is that it's made to use on paint also, so an over application won't look goofy on the paint, and won't run and leave streaks if it gets wet like so many other comparable products seem to do.

I don't know, because it isn't raining here...
