    Chips away would be my first thought

    Better call your local franchisee

    They do interior repairs too I think ..

    The small tear on my artico/dinamica leatherette started out just like that. A year later it's progressed to a couple of inches long. Would like to know how and where to get it fixed or replaced.

    How well do you know your MB dealer?
    I had similar issues with interior trim door panel on my last BMW. Was quoted £1k for new door card fitted by BMW. Very kind service rep at BMW dealer told me who they use and it cost me £60 and they came to my house. (sorry - in Liverpool so doubt they would come to Essex).
    if you ask your MB dealer nicely they may tell you the firm they outsource this type of work to. I very much doubt they would do it themselves. No harm in asking and it may save a lot if money !!!

    Who you want is an interior trimmer not a paint specialist. They are not "manufacturer specific" so any trimmer who does work for the usual prestige makes would do audi,bmw,lexus,mercedes,jaguar. As suggested ask around.

    This is already 6/8in long but the material underneath hasn't torn yet so trying to sort it before it does.

    Looks perfect in the picture.....exactly what I need.

    My car's not worth much so it makes sense keeping a lid on costs.

    Would you mind saying where you had it repaired, and how much?
