    Default Soft touch coating

    Might be a bit of a strange question but, does anyone know if the panel (with slightly nobbled effect) that surrounds the stereo, hazard light and blank switches etc , have this stupid soft touch coating that Vx seem to put everywhere, reaon for asking is mine had what I thought was a stain of some sorts on it and when wiping it , it seemed like some sort of coating was coming off, it's difficult to make out if it is a coating or not as it were and feel a bit reluctant to wipe anymore in case it is a coating and more starts coming off, hope this makes sense!!
    Cheers Pete

    it is a coating sprayed on at the factory....and it's not really repairable..... unless it's done by a specialist...

    Thanks for that mate; luckily enough the console is anthracite in colour and underneath the coating is black, so have used one of those dashboard shine sponge pads, if you know what I mean and rubbed that on the console and doesn't look that noiceable now, but will probably have to re-do it every so often. Why they have to use this poxy coating is beyond me, used to be a right nightmare on my previous 2001 Omega !!
    Cheers Pete
