Have you tried a garage? Most motorway service stations, for example, will have this kind of stuff.

I tried Shell, but they didn't have a large choice, some gloss finish with aroma, but I was looking something more for protection and mat finish.

Not sure how you can have a matt or gloss finish - it's only an artificial 'wetting' agent, so the visible texture will be that of the underlying plastic. I've never even imagined that there might be different types.

And protection? Not really. Superficial scrapes won't be so visible, perhaps, but nothing more than that.

There is a matt finish that doesn't shine when you are under the sun and driving, the gloss one will bother you if you don't have sunglasses for example.

Protection mainly from squeaking, the joints of the plastic can sometimes do that after long time on the sun so a silicon spray helps a lot.
