Does anyone have any advice as to the best way to clean / polish the dashboard.

I'm always a little woried about scatching the piano black plastic.
Yep,

I use Poorboys natural look trim gel for all the internal plastic trim.

Apply some onto a microfibre cloth and rub onto the dash and trim.

Then buff up with another clean microfibre.

On my second mini now with piano black trim and never had an issue, this stuff brings it up a treat, lasts for ages and makes the car smell nice too!:nerd:

These little (well, not that little) wipes pick up every speck of dust and debris, are non-greasy, and leave your interior smelling fresh.


One caution: have a clean dry microfiber cloth handy to wipe down the faces of your gauges and connectivity screen to minimize smear.

Good info....I ordered the piano black interior trim, so that's good to know. Dark solid colors just tend show any imperfections more.

The alcohol in Windex type cleaners will eventually cloud up the nav screen and instrument panels. I clean those with Clarity by Prima or Adams glass cleaner.
For the dash I use Adam's Interior cleaner and a microfiber cloth (not the cheap ones from walmart or target,they have all kinds of flecks in them that will scratch).
I then treat all the hard plastic parts with Adams Leather Conditioner (it can be used on the dash and door panels as well). It has a UV protectant in it which should help keep the dash looking good over the years.
