Get what you paid for.
Noticed this as well. Wife put a scuff on my door sill plate the first day I had it with her heals. I have fingernail cuts from me reaching for my keys or the door handle. It's REALLY soft. I've never had this issue with a car before. Usually it takes something with more force or sharper. Oh well.

I did this too on the first day on the sill (wasn't wearing heels though). From that point on I've looked like an idiot trying to get out of the car without my shoes touching anything (I'm 6'1)

Coming from an Altima the plastic scuffs easily for some reason

Yeah 6'1" here too. Makes it a challenge to get out in a tight park when have to play operation and not touch the sides getting out lol.

I remember my 97 Supra had a really bad grey plastic on the inner dash that was easily scuffed.

Nothing that major, but it is annoying if you have OCD about scratches and scuffs. I always remind my fiancee to lift her feet getting in as she wears heals.

so every turn I made I heard something in the glove box slide back and forth. I kept pulling things out of it ( there really wasn't much in it other than the outlet plug and an ez pass) until nothing was in it but I still heard something. I was about to pull the thing apart when I found this



back here




now I'm back to loving it again

Lack of grab handles for the passenger, lack of justifiability range for the steering wheel- but those are minor gripes. And I would have picked a different (grippier) set of Michelins for the BRZ.

Especially when you get lots of glare from the sun and it washes out the entire LCD screen...

I keep coming close to pulling the trigger on a new head unit....
