Re-conditioning Rubber Seals

I have been looking at the door seals on my 300D. They are pretty good, perhaps a little dry around the corners. Is there something that can be used to preserve and perhaps even revitalize? Or should I just plan to replace them.

I have heard replacement seals never are quite as good as the originals.

Thanks,
William

Or Vinylex.

The Original O.E. REPLACEMENT seals from Mercedes were "Top Drawer",who knows WTF they've outsourced and try to sell you now(?)

I too have had good success with Aerospace 303. It isn't too greasy or glossy like other products when used correctly. Keeps all plastics and rubber or vinyl trim looking fresh.
