I’m currently in the planning stages of fixing up my Cadenza. One of the things I’m going to try do deal with is fading on the two plastic pieces on the roof bordering the moonroof (the Florida sun takes no prisoners). Is there anything I can use to fix this, or am I stuck with replacing them? Doesn’t look cracked just pretty faded

Yeah, just get it wrapped. Take it to a tint/wrap shop and say you want those pieces wrapped. I had the same problem and I took it to my local tint shop and they were able to wrap it without taking any pieces of the car off. I've had those pieces wrapped for ~3 years, no issues.

Honestly, I thought they were glass like the rest of the roof but I guess not. Wrapping sounds like an excellent idea!

I use a Plexiglas polish. It's a Meguiars product, used it for years. polished the chrome and lenses all around the car too. Takes off oxidation leaves no scratches. The strips you're talking about, it's a bit of a chore to clean up the first time, but after that, take a couple minutes polish them about 3-4 times a year right before you wash the car, and they will stay like new. 2014 and mine still look like glass. Although i also use garage a lot and park in the shade at work. Helps prolong the life of any car.
