Black trim peeling

I have a few wear areas of interior black trim that have worn or peeled. To sure what touch up options exist or if and how much replacement would be.

Thanks!
Jason

for the first picture (command know) you can wrap that piece with vinyl (any color of your choice)
but the steering wheel control (why so much sand and other crud in there lol) .... im not sure what can be done.
even tho i applied a little amount of plasti dip on my lock/unlock buttons and it kinda looks identical to that matt black paint so you cant really tell its there unless you look close. (its temporary though until i find smth else)

IIRC that panel that surrounds the comand knob is less than $50. I had the same issue 3 years ago.

But if you have to use something else like plasti dip then just do that on both. Shame that this happens. You would think for a high use component it would be more durable.

Just so you have an idea....

It does look better and will look better if you actually take your time doing it.

I had a spot on the steering wheel on the CPO ML350 we got- the dealership had a guy who does touch-up work for them. I couldn't tell where the spot was when he was done. I don't know what it is about European cars and the rubberized coatings peeling. It seems to be a common issue with Mercedes and BMW.

My window controls on the driver side door have peeled too, these sticker things on amazon seem promising, but do they fit on the E class?

i would assume buttons size should be identical to w212... im 95% sure they will work , but idk for how long itll stay on there after oil will get in there , and they mights just start peeling off ....eventually

No reviews on the linked product, but if you look at similar items from same seller, the reviews are not kind. I recall someone wrote they could have made better stickers on their home printer.
