GL550 in Texas

I just purchased a 2010 GL. It's an absolutely awesome machine (my other machine is a BMW 750Li). Way happier with this over an X5!! I'm under factory warranty but am seriously bummed with these 3 things:

1. My nav screen seems to have the purplish coating stripped (except the very outer edge). Do you think warranty will cover this?

2. Running boards seem very aged - not sure how to re-new them.

3. The previous detail/owner/dealership detailed the car very poorly - it smells like Windex instead of Leather. I can't seem to draw out the beautiful leather smell (it's a 2010). Any suggestion please?

Looking forward to my next opportunity to drive - "honey...I think we're out of Milk right back "
