Piano black plastic left of digital cluster

Hi all,

Was cleaning the car today and noticed light scratches on the piano black trim left of the digital cluster and steering wheel.

Above the air vents.

I thought I said no to all piano black guess I missed a spot.

What can I do?

Thank you!

If such a small piece of piano black plastic bothers you, I'd recommend having it wrapped in satin or matte film. However, if you give it some time you will probably adjust to it.

Any thoughts to removing it to wrap it?

I like that idea!

Take some scratch x and lightly buff it out and come back with a little wax. I have done this on my x5 piano black and it came out ok.

It's inevitable with anything shiny and black. If you look at it wrong, it will show swirls. If you have any gloss black trim on the car such as the front grills, they too will readily show swirls.
