dashboard distraction

We like our new 2009 Forester. Except we find the two vertical fake brushed aluminum moldings to be distracting on the dash. Especially with the sun roof cover moved back. The brightness is distracting. Anybody else notice this? I don't want to paint it over, since its a lease.

I notice that the high end model with leather seats has the vertical strips in fake wood veneer, less distracting. But we have the middle model with fake brushed aluminum.

    My 2.5i Limited has the same ones, I think the wood may be an option.

    You could add it, then remove when you return the lease. In fact I doubt they would even notice you had changed them. If it bothers you a lot I say go ahead.
  • Someone on another forum said that he put black electrical tape on the moldings, and that solved the problem. Might be worth a try.
