As you can see from the picture I was drinking a fizzy drink and on opening it exploded and now it has stained the plastic near the gear stick, Iím not sure I can get this out is there a way? Or can I replace this?

Thank you

replacing it would be a nightmare, you could try just to keep washing it down with a bit of soap on a sponge and repeatedly rub it down, that should clear it out? unless the acid has burned it a little in which case, it might not work so well.

I'm guessing the acid has done its damage , i would remove the trim and re-spray it myself , cheaper than replacing , you could even put a clear coat on it .

i wounder it a little t-cut might fetch it back

im going to take a picture of mine and re-colour see what it might look like in say Gloss black.

What fizzy drink did you spill mate?

Iíve spilled Red-Bull on mine a couple of times and luckily it hasnít done any damage and its full of chemicals,

you could always carbon wrap it either.B)
