are you talking about the window trims? if so i think its just rubber/plastic, so any black paint with an undercoat of plastic primer would work.
also, i dont know how far gone your's is, but black shoe polish works to add colour and shine back into the trims.

Where did you get them from? Is it a DIY job? I have been there trying to paint too. I did a heap of coats and sanding and it still wasnt coming up nice and smooth.
