"back to black" from mothers works well but doesnt last very long.
"Forever Black" is a dye, permanent, great for black and it works very well.

Adams In and Out spray if you don't want that glossy black look.

It was discontinued for a while but I think they are making it again.

Chemical Guys Black on Black works pretty well.

A cheaper product that you can probably get locally is Stoner Trim Shine.

Adam's isn't bad either, but one bottle runs out pretty quickly.

From experience, Most of the products listed above either don't provide the plastic with adequate hydration, don't last very long, or are very greasy. My absolute favorite product for plastics is Swissvax Protecton. It is a water-base and dries within a minute or two to the touch. It lasts about a whole month with a single application, and a little goes a LONG way. It's expensive, however worth every penny.
