$350 is more like it and I might consider going that route.

In the past I got burned by using cleaning wipes that ruined the finish resulting in fading that couldn't be reversed.

Here is a simple one, use a bright orange Sharpie permanent marker and color the center console stitching to match the rest of the orange stitching. The brighter the orange the better, fluorescent orange if possible. The stitching is light gray.
Thank you, i may attempt that

You're welcome. Also do the full LED bulb replacement of the interior and exterior lighting. Amazon is your friend, you can get the bulb list from the owner manual. Get the stubby LED bulbs for the fog lights, otherwise they won't fit. They are also the toughest to get to.
You just might improve the mileage just a tiny bit by not using as much power to light those incandescent bulbs.

Did you have an issues with bulb warning for the swap to LED fog lights, you can do a factory swap but you have to get the light module reprogrammed for the lower power .
Thanks.

Plug and play. No reprogramming needed for all bulbs. Don't do it to the turning signal bulbs, or you get the hyper-flashing happening. You can add load resistors, but that defeats the purpose of using less electricity. If you want the cool factor, sure.

Nice treatments to the cabin but over the years ive stated to dislike carbon fiber trim, stating to think adding tint film might improve them in my case.
