Does anyone know if there is a remedy for a scratched up center console? The gray material is a painted on, or applied material that scratches very easily i've found.<br>TIA

If you're referring to the dark grey plastic, depending on the type of scratch, a black/gray Sharpie marker pan, applied carefully, can work OK <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>If the scratch is large/deep go to a PepBoys find a Duplicolor paint that closely matches the color.<br>Otherwise take it off, if it's the cupholder cover and paint it.<br>If it's the vertical (radio area) you're sort of SOL outside of what I suggested

Semi flat Krylon paint is close. <IMG SRC="http://www.krylon.com/images/products/large/interior_exterior.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br><A HREF="http://www.krylon.com/main/product_template.cfm?levelid=5&sub_levelid=9&productid=1745&content=product_details" TARGET="_blank">http://www.krylon.com/main/pro...tails</A><p>Also you could order a new piece and just replace it.

Not a cheap solution, but a good leather repair outfit can touch up the soft dash material for you (if that's the problem). My dealer damaged my door panel during a recent service visit and their used car department arranged for the repair. The door panel looks perfect now.<p>Good luck!<p>- Tryg<br>

The other option is to go the route someone else did and paint over the cup-holder cover/shifter surround with the exterior color.
