If applying a plastic conditioner does not bring it back to a good looking black again due to exposure to the sun and elements.

Then it may then need to be cleaned off VERY WELL and then a TRIM BLACK paint from SEM applied on it.

IF that paint seems to peel off in a short time. Then it\\that paint will need to be removed and then possibly applying BULLDOG adhesion promoter on it THEN the trim black paint from SEM.

i have an older bmw e36. The moldings would turn white. you can clean them well with and all purpose cleaner and wax grease remover and apply good dressings but they always come back faded. I like to use chemical guys trim black gel, or CarPro PERL.
