Hi I have some scratches on the piano black on the centre console of my C63s, does anyone know the best way/product to remove the scratches? Thanks in advance.
 
Various grade polishes works well. If you don't have a range of detailing products to hand, use T-Cut, followed by a fine polish such as Autoglym SRP and finish off with household Pledge and a duster. That worked a treat of the fine scratches on my Black Age pieces

Bit of topic but recently sat in a show room display W213 (brand new un-registered car), first thing I noticed, scratches on the piano black centre console. :eek: Thinking that these finishes must be very delicate, look fab when new/unmarked but long term quite put me off that finish.

Good luck polishing off and do post back on success and thoughts on durability of the finish, perhaps I just spotted the bad one...
 
Meguiars Ultimate Compound will do the trick.
 
Thanks, I've have some of that stuff ok already.
Have you used it on the internal trims before?
Any tips would be greatly appreciated?

I've used it on interior trim and on the black plastic 'B Pillar' on the door. works really well to remove scratches.
 
I have the piano black trim as well and I wondered about maintenance. I'm pretty sure I saw a You Tube of this finish being machine polished and that it is lacquer coated, so treat as any lacquer finish. I don't think it's particularly delicate just that a highly polished black finish shows the tiniest of marks.
 
My piano black dash trim is a bit of a mess with light scratches, i thought about actually removing it from the car and getting a machine polisher on to it or even just better access by hand. Anyone know how easy it is to remove the wood section from the dash on an '05 CLS?
 
I gave up and wrapped mine.

The slightly-matt finish of the wrap is harder wearing and less Liberace, so I'm happy.

There's literally hundreds of different patterns available, I just happened to go for Burr Elm. The W164 interior could certainly use some "humanising". The brushed aluminium and Piano black only add to the down-market utilitarian feel, so it had to go.

All IMHO, of course. You could always use a wrap that looks like the original....

Did this 3 years ago and it still looks perfect. Total cost for the vinyl wrap was £10(!) on ebay.
