Replacing rear armrest and speaker surround

Hi,

As the name indicates I'm curious if the rear centre armrest and surround to the central bose speaker can be replaced?

My car is a my13. The previous owner (a forum member) had to put his wheelchair in the back and its left a few scratches. I'm a bit OCD and it's the only thing on the car that's not mint so of possible I'd like to replace.

Cheers muchly

Why couldn't it be replaced?

They are separate pieces and easily removed.

Didn't say it couldn't.. Was asking if it could and if so what options I might have. Figure it's either Nissan to have my pants royally pulled down and fisted dry, or perhaps some superior yet cheaper Oem?

Don't think anybody does non OEM ones as such though I believe Andy @ R35Audio does a version covered in leather / Alcantara which looks good and would of course hide the scratches.
I'd say it's worth dropping him a line and asking what he can offer.

It can be re-trimmed in leather/alcantara or hydro dipped in carbon. If the scratches are deep, it might need a little tlc before the finish is applied.

Easy to remove and replace. Drop me an email with the damage if you like.

There's a picture of the rear centre section in hydro dipping on my stage 3 kit here :- Stage 3
