    Looks like it's just faded with the sun.

    Best thing I've found to bring it back out is Megs tyre gel (seriously), rub a very small amount into the plastic, leave it a minute or two, then buff it back off with a dry microfibre cloth which should leave it dry but nice again. You will have to re-do this regularly though, it's only a temporary thing, should last a week or two each time.

    Two other options, you can replace the doorcard completely (cheap enough on Ebay) or paint it using the special rubber paint who's name escapes me right now, but someone will no doubt be along with it shortly.

    My choice would be replace the door card personally.

    To me that looks as though it has been rubbed with something abrasive. If it has, then replacement is your best bet. HTH.
