Defo boiled linseed oil. i would recommend this over anything. it costs £3 a bottle and its lasted me well over 3 years and ive still got half a bottle left. its fantastic for all plastic trim and lasts ages. when i first did it i heat gunned the plastics first then used linseed oil and continue to top up every 1-2 month.

Me and my dad ALWAYS use Son of a Gun. spray on, leave for 10min, wipe off, and then buff with a microfiber cloth with a little more spray to get rid of any streaks. lasted all summer.
