How to polish exterior trim?

The lower 'plastic' trim on our silver Interstate has white blotches on (or in?) it. Anybody have suggestions on how to clean/polish/refurbish it?

I have the same problem. Those surfaces are reported to be painted, but I'm not so sure. If it is paint it is poor quality and soft paint. To me the surface looks like some sort of colored plastic wrap, which would explain the scratches and discoloration. Hope someone has some ideas on how to fix this problem.

While using bug and tar remover I found that it lessens the white blemishes - much better than does waxing it. Time will tell how long it lasts
