Sun protection

What can you recommend to protect the rubber, vinyl and leather in my Boxster from the sun? Also, does anyone in hot climates apply anything to the fabric top as a protectant? I've heard that I should avoid using products with silicone. Any advice?

Here's my list:

-Matte plastic: 303 Aerospace Protectant

-Shiny plastic surfaces (includes instrument guages, headlights, rear plastic window--oh wait, you dont have one! , and tailights: Plexus

-Leather: Lexol, but I understand Leatherique is superior

-Rubber: 303, BMW's Gummifledge, or Zymol Seal

-Top: Raggtop

Best weapon against the sun? A good car cover.

Lexol for plastic and another Lexol product for leather. For a time 303 was big for the cloth top, but then Raggtop came out. All of these products have UV protection. Jeff
