If you dont like the painted look, you can always remove all paint as I did, looks shiny black but goes with the interior well and looks newish.. If you want to keep your interior color then new dealr parts, if avalible and expensive, or used from parts places, try car-part.com are other ways to go....

Do a search on interior paint removal. Several methods can be used. I used a water based paint remover Motenbockers Lift Off avalible at Home depot in the states, not sure up in there but probably so... Paint it on with a brush, work in small areas, wait 5 or 10 mins and scrape off with plastic scraper. Some people remove gages and trim but I was successful without removing any parts. Be careful around your carbon fiber plastic as it will burn (etch) it if left on there, just wipe off quickly. You may have to work several areas twice and use toothpicks in corners and such. Took most of a day but you never have to worry about worn paint again!
