I recently traded in my Subaru for a 2019 Accord 2.0t 10-spd and it’s probably the best decision I’ve ever made and I love the car but me being a pain in the ass, the day I took it home I noticed the center console panel assembly had some scratches so I talked to the dealer and with out a problem they replaced it. I wasn’t mad because it looked like it can scuff or scratch really easy. Well the next day my plastic water bottle slipped out of my hand while I was putting it into the cup holder and it scuffed the dark gray finish on the panel, knowing my luck that would happen to me the day after I had it replaced but I was wondering if anyone else noticed how easily the center console gets scuffed and if anyone has done anything to protect it?

Check out "Chemical Guys". I have ordered from them to protect the exterior of my 2014 328i, Luxury Edition. They may have something you can purchase to protect it. AWESOME company to work with.

are you talking about the cup holder section or the housing around the shift? I have a 2019 2.0T Manual Trans so I've got a really big cup holder section and I've noticed that it scratches easily. I've noticed marks on it after I purchased it.

Since i have the 10-spd my center console is set up a little differently, but with how yours is set up it would be the cup holder section. I attached what im referring to, but im talking about the part of the panel thats Grand Bonheur Silver. Its going to get marks not matter what happens, but i was thinking about vinyl wrapping it, but the only way i feel to do it a clean way is to match it with the carbon fiber trim thats already on the front dash and side doors.

My 18 came scratched new from the dealer!!! I had the car delivered to my house and never bothered to get it fixed figuring a small $8 stick of touch up paint would do the trick but I haven’t yet looked for anything that matches the color. Check out my scratch near the automatic gear shift to the left of the Econ/sport buttons. Any suggestions on color to fix and where to get it?

yea, that's a bad one, I wouldn't have let that slide. I have my first service visit at the end of this month that they set me up with the day that I purchased the car which was 02/04 and you can bet I'm going to bring up a few items that they need to fix. I didn't spend $30K to get a damaged vehicle.

I'm wondering if you could use the clear paint protection film that's normally used on the exterior. I don't see why that wouldn't work.
I wanted to do this but was hoping someone would make a direct fit.
