    My wife leaves scratches/cracks like that around the door handle of her car. Wicked bad scratches on the piano by my neighbor, she has long finger nails. The scratches look like cracks by the way. LoL!

    worrisome about BMW quality, from my exp this means sub par material or process, possibly using scrap regrind plastic in the molding process. ie not virgin material .HAVE NEVER SEEN THIS IN AUTOMOTIVE interior PARTS and ive been around a long time.


    • I agree,,,I have seen another one last week same kind of cracks,,,in my 29 years working with BMW ,Mercedes,and Porsche ,,,it has to be the plastic recycling or the plastic is to thin.

    This is really disappointing. I have recently noticed cracks on my new BMW 430 radio buttons with 2,000 miles on the clock. Looking at various forums this seems to be a common thing since 2013 !! What is bmw doing not sorting this out for years!!! I have not taken it to bmw yet but will do. If they do not sort it out under warranty asap there will be trouble. What is there to say that the replacements wont crack ?
