Default Vinyl Dressing or None? (Interior) POLL

Do you prefer to use vinyl dressing on most of your interior, or do you like the natural factory finish? I always used to use vinyl dressing (meguire'*), but now I seem to be liking the natural look much more. I always use water and a drop of Murphy'* oil soap to clean, then vinyl dressing on the black door trim pieces, the door map pockets, the B-pillars (I have silicone stains on one of them, so the dressing kind of helps hide it), and the plastic trim aroudn the carpet. Everything else stays dressing free, and it looks great.

Most mass market products are just goo or spray with a bunch of silicone. The silicone makes it shiney.

Then others use rubber/vinyl conditioner/dressings.

I use a similar product, water based, smells like grape, that i use on tires, and engine/interior stuff as soon as I get more..

Makes the tires look new, not like they've been clear coated.

I like 303 protectant. It leaves a slight shine, but nothing over the top which is how I like it. I wouldn't be able to see through the windshield on a sunny day with the black dash if it was too shiny.
