    Question about Sea blue Interior

    Hi guys,

    Do the Sea blue interior has the same paint chips issues as the sand beige interior? I have seen some sand beige interiors and the scratch issues really bother me. If I get a send beige interior I would probably need to do full leather conversion (at least a central console leather conversion ).

    Does anyone knows if the Sea blue interiors suffer from the same issue? Will I see scratchs and paint chips in sea blue console?

    Regards

    I believe they all suffer from the same chipping/scratching. It's the "soft-touch" paint that does not adhere very well to the plastic interior parts. It's more noticeable in Sand Beige because of the contrast with the black plastic underneath.

    Thanks for the answer!

    Well, that'a a bummer. I was really hopping that the blue interior would be less prone to suffer from this issue. So I'll probably do a leather conversion for all scratching plastic parts, including the central console.

    Many have repainted the console or have done a swap with a repainted one from Bumper Plugs

    Re: Question about Sea blue Interior

    my experience with my 07 CS with sea blue interior is similar, it is not terribly robust. I have superficial scratches on the pillar plastic covers from a dash cover that had metal covered with cloth and on and around the console. I used my car as a daily driver (now retired) and racked up 96K. I will slowly repair these items either replacing or repainting...first I need to replace the head liner but having said that, the car has been rock solid.
