Aw man... Scratches on my center console

Oops, I accidentally posted in the wrong forum at first. Well, it's only been 3 months and I noticed some scratches on the edge of my center console. Anybody have any suggestions? I tried rubbing a little bit of Meguiar's liquid wax on it since I heard sometimes that can help with scratches but I still see it. Your thoughts are appreciated.

Have a good one!

Sorry to hear that. What center console design do you have? Infamous piano black (aka scratch magnet); high gloss wood finish; natural wood flat finish? If its a shiny finish a rubbing compound used to polish scratches out of clear coat might do the trick? Good luck, and let us know what you did.

Thanks for the tip. I didn't think about rubbing compound. I have the high gloss brown Ashwood.

Depends on how deep the scratches are.

I have the same happening with my black gloss. It's fine for now but once it starts to drive me crazy, I'll swap it for black ash.

Looks good new but so ugly scratched

Yeah, tell me about it. I guess one day I may replace mine too.

You could also have it covered with PPF.

Paint Protection Film. There are a zillion installers. It is a clear vinyl film typically used for exterior paint. Super durable and scratch resistant (or proof according to some).

You all change it by yourself or you ask the dealer to change it?
