I don't know about you guys but it bothers me a little that I have these scratches on my black trim around the ignition key area from missing the hole when trying to start her up. Anyone have a solution? Is there something I can buy that protects the plastic trim surrounding that area?

If you don't drive the car, there will be no marks there.
They are called Beauty Marks.:17:

Mount a funnel so the key goes into the hole each time.:D:17:

You can buy a cell phone (or any) screen protector, cut a round hole, trim the size and put it around the push button starting knob.

Solution? Yea, don't miss the hole. I'm being somewhat serious, I've never had this issue on any of my cars.

Ahh yes I was thinking of this but if I'm parked outside with the heat the adhesiveness may lose it's effectiveness but it's worth a shot.

Really I highly doubt that, I bet on everything if you take a look you will see some scratches.

If you're a passenger you can see the scratches very easily, in plain sight, especially if you got black trim like me.


Another annoying problem is when my shoes rub the bottom door speaker area it leaves white scuff marks. :rolleyes: ugggh like gosh lol

Anybody know how to get rid of those scuff marks on the door panels? The guys at the car wash hadn't a clue.
