I see no way they can claim that (or rather get away claiming that). I'll point to these threads !

Hmmm, mine came pre-scratched...I don't think I had to pay extra for it. :?

The worst of these happened when the hose of a vacuum slid across the surface. Like the upholstery on the door arms, the high gloss acrylic on the LEAF's center console has always struck me as a poor industrial design choice for a high traffic environ. I know they wanted to make it like an ipod/iphone but there is a reason that we all have cases for those things.

I'm thinking of trying to mask the scratches with a banana or trying Novus acrylic polish. What are my fellow LEAFer's using to protect and/or polish their center consoles?
