    Default C5 X7 light coloured Soft Feel

    Hi C5 X7 owners,

    Thanks to a very observant fellow Frogger who replaced their Light Coloured Soft Feel drivers door pull trim on an early car, he noticed that the replacement is no longer Soft Feel!

    As in the Dark Grey interior, the trim now has a semi gloss hard finish that is much more durable.

    I did some further investigating and the centre console trim is no longer soft feel as well.

    All late X7's a fitted with the semi gloss finish on both the console and the door pulls.

    I've just brought in the Centre console trim for our 2009 X7. The X7 is pretty lacking in decent storage, and leaving a set of keys in the centre console is an accident waiting to happen with the Soft Feel?

    It's a bit pricey, but includes the ashtray and the handbrake surround. It's not so difficult to fit, fitting the cigarette lighter into the new ashtray proving the most difficult. There is a bit of a trick to it.

    For those who continue to persevere with their original soft feel, the number one warning is not to use a silicone cleaner (Armour All).

    Best regards,

    I always use 303, have done for many years - is an excellent product. I am not at financial liberty to express my concerns as to the use of Armourall (however it is spelt).
