Fine scratches on my wood trim 07 IS350

I have some fine scratches on my wood trim near the gear shift. Does anyone have a good suggestion on hoe to clean these up and how to protect the trim from future ones. It seems inevitable that it will happen from year to year.
Thanks!!

Find a gentle polish to clean up the scratches and use a micro fiber towel.

Also use a micro fiber towel, or really soft terry cloth, for future wiping and cleaning of the surface. Don't ever use a paper towel or rough synthetic fiber cloth! (cringe)

I'm special :)

Never seen this. You had good luck with it?

Yeah, the scratches worried me for the first few weeks of ownership, now I just choose to ignore 'em.

I got it to use on a clearcoat scratch I had on my roof where the garage door came down on it. It did a good job. I haven't tried it on wood but I don't see why it wouldn't work on the wood clearcoat.

Consumer reports tried several scratch repair products and Quixx was the only one they found that worked.

I switched my wood trim for the metalic trim when i ordered my car. it matches with my ext color better, also there is the aded benefit of no scratches :-P

I have the small scratches on my trim, then after reading this thread I paid attention to what I was doing. I keep tossing the keys in the cup holder and that is the answer to the scratches for me.

Maybe PlastX would be more appropriate, no?
