    My kids scratched the backs of the front seats and I tried this product and it got rid of the scratches.

    If they got scratched that quickly, it sounds like Xpel is a must on the seat backs....

    Cool. Like I mentioned in another thread, though, Novus plastic polish would probably also do the trick while being less abrasive.

    Has anyone contacted their Service Center to ask about the cost of replacements for the molded seatback? I've seen people paying $100-$200 to XPEL them and was curious how much it would cost to replace them outright.

    We're considering buying self-installed vinyl coverings for our seat backs. Something like this on Amazon.

    good question, I will ask when my turn comes. My guess is $200 a piece.

    Maybe the next gen ones might not be shiny. I would hold off in anticipation of that before I replaced like for like.

    I'm somehow embarrassed to admit that the shininess is growing on me. Maybe I'm just scared to think otherwise:
