Unhappy How easy is it to replace scratched interior trims on my Benz :(

Hello all, I finally purchased my first Benz this year early August just on time for the arrival of my first baby boy. The Toronto dealers does not have any brand new R350 anymore and the best I can settle for is a low mileage R350 bluetec. The car has been fantastic and I am extremely pleased with the performance and ride.

As with any used car, there are bound to be some wear and tear here and there and I've tried my best to restore everything to pristine condition as I really love this big Benz. The previous owner must have transported some stuff in the rear that caused scratches circled on the pictures below:



I was able to find the replacement parts on EPC and some friendly US dealers are willing to ship to me at a much more reasonable price compared to local dealers. The million dollar question is how hard is it to remove and replace those parts? I see that this forum have a repair section with recommended body shop in the Toronto area, maybe I should give them a ring for a quote?

why not just take it to a bodyshop and have them repaint them,an epoxy based paint is available that matches the factory color and when prepped right you will have no issues..

THIS IS THE EASIEST WAY TO MAKE MONEY IVE FOUND SO FAR..
I just found the instruction on how to remove the part so I am going to try repair/buff it first before replacing.
