Center Console matt finish peeling (2005 S)


Recommended Posts

I have a 2005 S, the matt finish on the center console has started peeling at any minor wear point. The edge of the ash tray, I dont use it but I sometimes rest my hand there, and on the passenger side where the seatbelt clasp touches. Has anyone else has this problem?.

Apart from that have had no trouble with car, drive every day, switch to winter tyres and drive all winter.

I recently purchased a 2005 987 and in the process I looked at A LOT of pictures of 987s from 2005. I noticed that a good percentage of the cars had this paint peeling problem on the temperature and fan up/down buttons (mine does not but a lot did). 2005 was the year that Porsche introduced the new interior for the Boxster, so, perhaps this was an issue with their new components. Attached is a picture of what I'm talking about.

+1 on this. Mine's not as bad as yours but I have the same issue on my fan switch, looks more like someone's fingernail scraped it off.

The only way to get a new switch is to pony up for a new climate unit. Since I'm not made of money (nor am I daft) I plan to buy matte paint of some sort to touch it up.

I've scoured the internets looking for soft-touch paint touch-up (try saying that five times fast) and haven't found any, so if someone has please chime in!
