I can't believe a company like Porsche,does not have interior touch up paint available ?

What I see they have done now is paint black plastic with whatever your interior color you have, how cheap !

I have a 2002 996 which is Seal grey with Seal Grey interior paint on the console, dash etc. Although my 996 is ten years old, I only have 24 K miles on it, it's in great shape, however>> Lately I noticed where the parking brake handle goes into the console, wear marks , showing the black plastic underneath. This is also apparent where the headlamp switch is. Wear marks ! The paint is chipped slightly inn several areas (You would think they would dye it all the way through like they do on US vehicles costing thousands less ??? ) Point is, where does one obtain the "flat Seal Grey" paint that they used ? HELP !!! :help:

I've been considering repainting some of my interior for the same reason. The paint on both my shifter and my parking brake handle is wearing off. I am thoroughly unimpressed with Porsche's decision to use aluminium paint instead of the real metal especially on the shift knob :-(

The rest of my interior is excellent and the warn paint really ages the car. Are there any good online sources that already have the right paint colour(s)?

I recently used a product called Hi-tech vinyl dye. It comes in an aerosol can and you can google it to find the best price. A can is approximately $8. I used it to repaint my seatbelt covers (I don't know the real name of them). I sand them downed them down with a scotch brite and some steel wool. The color is near perfect and it has held up so far. Ht-445 Carbon grey was the color I used. I hope this helps.
