    Alloy Inlay covered in little marks

    Still finding my way around the new Toy and have noticed The drivers door inlay is marked can it be removed and polished or will i need a new one. looking at the price of plastic ones they won't be cheap i'm guessing.............

    If its piano black you might be able to polish the scratches out. They can be replaced very easily tho

    I had audi replace mine before i received the car as the previous owner had scratched the hell out of it with a ring

    It's Alloy so I was wondering about polishing but the dinks look too deep so i'm thinking it'll be a new one. Any ideas on price/ part number anyone please?

    If its the dimpled aluminium one then the drivers side one costs about £75, well it did 2 years ago. Mine was scratched by the previous owner, I think the metal part of the seat belt used to hit it when they took it off to quickly.
