    So I just picked up a used 08 S5... Noticed on my drive home from the dealer - about an hour too late - that the piano black trim piece in the center console was scratched. Thing bothers the hell out of me. I'm sure it's expensive as hell to replace (and the dealer won't do it - like I said, noticed it an hour too late :mamoru:)... anything I can do to fix this thing?

    The thought crossed my mind that a swirl or scratch removal product might work, but I don't want to try anything on it as an experiment. :o

    Pic coming...

    I would try some Meguiar's Plast-X on it first....

    Not sure if that piece is coated, so even polishing it might not restore it. Remove, use a plastic polish and evaluate.

    Just remove it and have it repainted basecoat black clearcoat on top.

    Small body shop should do it for $60 cash.
