    Piano Black Scratches

    I have some light scratches on my piano black inserts. I am VERY careful when cleaning the car and it's only 4 months old but the scratches are there.

    VERY sensitive plastic. Any ideas what I can use on them to polish it up a bit? Has anybody else had issues with this?

    Yeah mine on the RS4 were badly scratched. Worked the area with Menzerna 3.02 on at megs foam applicator pad. Got about 85% out and those left were much less noticable.

    Meguiars PlastX is for this purpose. I'm looking to get some myself because my piano black trim is a scratch magnet also.
    I've considered picking up some brushed aluminium inserts for the doors only for the look but i think piano black looks better in the centre console.
    Obviously the aluminium scratches less easily but any scratches it does pick up are permenant unless you get them refinished....So at least with Piano black you can correct it yourself.
