    Interior scratches

    As time permits I intend on using the old hair dryer trick to gently warm any scratches (i.e. center console, etc...) and gently buff them smooth with my finger. Can't help but notice that the radio bezel seems to be a magnet for fine scratches, don't want to try the hair dryer approach on that though since it looks to be painted plastic (?).

    Any tips/tricks to get rid of the fine scratches on the bezel?

    you could always lightly sand it, primer it, & repaint it. (a lot of people do it satin black and it actually looks really good)

    I feared that might be my best option; unfortunately if there's anything I don't have patience for it's painting

    I painted mine, and it's probably the best interior choice I have made. No more scratches. I used Rustoleum textured plastic paint. Took about an hour to take everything off, paint it and put it back on.
