Protecting the MX Piano Finish on Seat backs


Active Member

When I test drove a Model X in Sacramento I noticed several pronounced scratches in the piano finish seat backs. Personally, I would have preferred a more durable surface like the Model S, but now I am wondering what I can do to protect the finish. Like all my cars, I intend to use my MX for camping trips, skiing/biking trips, and even things like picking up lumber and t-posts from Home Depot. Has anyone come up with an attractive way to protect the seat backs?

The installers did wrap them, but since it is a clear glossy film you can't see the edges, you can only feel them.
