    That’s why I’ve been hesitant to do it. It is garaged now but I don’t know about before I got it.

    I would be surprised if that weren`t the case. I`d expect it to be so severe that the stripes will need to be replaced for the car to look right. So, just FWIW...if it were mine, I`d leave `em alone and consider it "patina". Hey, it`s not (IMO) evidence of abuse or damage, it`s just...age-related wear/tear. The oe PPF on two of our Audis have cracked, and eh...OK..they`re not new cars any more.

    what would be the best LSP/coating to put on them to wring out the longest I can get out of them?

    Noting that I`m *NOT* dialed-in on all the modern products ...I`d use Optimum Car Wax. It protects against (further) UV damage and doesn`t "dry white" in the cracks. That`s what I`m using on the cracked PPF on my wife`s A8 and my `93.
