    Yep, been brought up in the past - those things strip off that rubbery coating.

    Where exactly has it stripped the finish off? The steering wheel cowling? If so then it's not too expensive to replace.

    I have just put a magic tree on my interior mirror hanging down. Did not know they are that strong to remove stuff.

    From this thread - http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=29809 - seems to be around £15 (maybe a bit more given the age of that thread) but still a lot less than you'd expect.

    Part number looks like it's 13110701.
