After 2.5+ years and almost 10,700 miles I've been very happy with my MS. However, I just noticed damage & wear were I wouldn't have expected it. My conclusion is that it is an ergonomic design problem: there are two points in the interior finish that protrude into the entrance area. Although I had not noticed it, while getting into the car over these last two years my back/shirt apparently has been rubbing against these two points. Now the area is worn through (see photos). Perhaps this has been aggravated by the fact that I'm 6'2" so my drivers seat is further back than most. The passenger side has no wear at these two points since I mostly drive alone but I have to believe it is subject to the same use risk. In most other respects I've kept my car in pristine condition but now that I know about it, these two blemishes really bother me. Has anyone else seen this (I tried a search but came up with nothing)? Does anyone have ideas of cost effective ways to fix this - so it doesn't reoccur? It would be nice if a molded stainless steal cap could be added - particularly to the top point (the leather wear is less noticeable). The problem is that this is a very odd shape and it would be difficult to make something like that.
