Center console

Hate the finish on these things. The coating on mine seems to scratch off with my fingernail. Should I strip the coating and leave as is? Wrap it with vinyl/leather? Paint it?
If I painted it I'd probably go with silver. Bumper plugs sells them but the price is ridiculous. Anyone had theirs painted or wrapped at a local shop? Price?

Mine is black yes. The rubberized coating on the console is unique to the facelifts (I believe)

On a side note I just scored this on ebay! Seller accepted my offer of $70.

I was wondering the same thing. Here is the thread that I started on this subject:
center console ideas

I'm going for the hydro-dipped carbon fiber.
