    My 2007 BMW M6 had interior plastics that looked very nice but the "soft feel" paint on them wore off very quickly. The bottom part of the door panels and the steering wheel were especially bad for having the paint flake off. Do I wish that the graining on the interior of the V was a bit more subtle, yes. Do I not like the "piano black" on the center console, yep but I don't really see the huge difference between the V interior and a 5-series BMW or a E-Class Merc like my wife's 2012 E350 Cabriolet which features some pretty marginal plastics. I think Audi beats everyone on interior "craftsmanship" but I would not want to own an Audi out of warranty again.

    I had the same issue with the rubberized stuff on my 2008 5-series. BMW's certainly aren't perfect. I think you are right, Audi has it dialed in right now.
