    Scratches in the shiny plastic around the gear selector

    Anyone have this issue? Looks like a key or something scratched the plastic around the gear selector. If so, how did you resolve it? Based on my research, the replacement from Mazda is over $400.

    Thanks

    Don't bother with replacement, same thing will happen. It's just the way it is with the piano black trim used in practically all cars. Your best bet is to cover it up with an overlay of some sort.

    It is possible to polish it out with plastic polish. It will be cheaper, but requires more work, and you'll have to maintain it as it will continue to scratch over time.

    Just do a google search, not that hard to find. Links from carID.com etc will pop up.
