    I was going to say it might be down to sun light damage but I stay in Scotland so that would be wrong of me

    They tend to fade if you take them to 'car washes' to get cleaned. The products they use tend not to be the most expensive and are chemical heavy! I don't take mine to get washed but the previous owner must have as mines are stained.

    I'd like to know a remedy too!
