Depends very much on the colour of the side strips - some are black others are grey.
Generally silicon based products are the best.
There is a trade product but it is only sold in 5 litres cans and costs about 35. I can't remember it name at the moment but if I come across it I'll post up the name.

I remember now it's called Elite very similar to Meguiars product

Totally agree the scuff cover is the stuff I use and it holds its colour well.Rub it on with the sponge applicator and then rub over with a rag to blend it and remove the sponge marks.

I wear the trousers in our house

She just tells me what colour :D
