There used to be a product called "Back to black" that was really intended for application to vehicles with lots of black plastic trim, that might do the trick.

Be warned though - I found that stuff tended to become addictive. By that I mean let's say it took ten years for your black trim to fade to a point where you wanted to do something about it, after you'd applied the product it would be maybe six months before it wanted some more. I put that down to the product being a coating that faded more quickly than the original surface. I think the one I used was an Autoglym product, but it's probably similar to the original.
