All,

Just purchased an '08 Type S with 34k on the clock. Really pleased with the car.

The glass over the Rev Counter is scratched as is the gloss black surround. I do like the gloss black but I do see that a type R dash is an option.

I'm loathed to spend £100+ replacing the speedo glass so are their any products to use on this Perspex? It is just the purple coating which is scratched. How bad is the reflection with the pespex polished and the coating removed?

Any help appreciated.

You could carbon wrap the dash.

As for the glass it's difficult to find a 'polish' that won't leave smear marks as it seems to that type of plastic.

Hi and welcome,

As above, carbon wrapping the surround is one of the cheapest options.

As for the speedo glass, I used biorb fish tank polish. This took the scratches out but the finish is not perfect as it removes the anti glare coating.

Wow! That did a brilliant job. How do you find the reflection given that the coating has been removed now? Do you find it a problem or not that noticeable?
