Dunno, Bro. I think most like the matte dash, for safety among other things. Try searching at detailersdomain.com for interior care: vinyl/rubber

like thekurgan said most like matte or satin finish. you are def. on the minority side for liking shiny. Not there is anything wrong just different.

try walmart or any other store that offers detailing supplies. theyll probably have some shiny stuff for you. you could even use exterior products and apply it to the dash

Don't the Armor All wipes leave that shiny residue? Not my cup of tea, but you might want to try those as well.

Personally, I use 303 Aerospace Protectant for the dash and non-leather stuff. It doesn't leave things shiny though.

I also do not like a Shiny/Greasy Residue.

I spray it on to a microfiber, It dries - dry! If that makes sense.

+1

I use the Quick Interior Detailer too. Cleans things up and leaves an OEM finish. No shine at all. Plus UV protection.

I have this stuff that I use sometimes for tires when someone wants a high shine gel. Also great for exterior trim that is faded. It should work fine for interior too. Super shiny stuff and it's water based so won't damage your trim. Just wipe it down a bit before touching as it is kinda sticky.

You can try meguiars hyper dressing.....allows you to adjust the concentration for the level of shine you want.

Most any "dressing" though still has a good amount of shine. If you want to stick with meguiars, you can try their supreme shine. Even their "natural shine" has decent amount of sheen when using it on tires.

Like others in thread, I use their interior detailer and prefer no dressing
