    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.
