I purchased a mat that fits the contours of the dash perfectly. Black with a red trim ( mine is pearl black).

Purchased from Aliexpress for £16.53. I've purchased a few bits for my QQ from here and not had any problems.

Billgo, just a question have you by any chance had your QQ cleaned Inside by a Professional Cleaning Outlet the reason being a friend had a New SUV in the US done and they applied a Dashboard Protector that just Shone - terrible. I very rarely put any polish or protector on the Dash I just Dust it regularly with a Micro-Fibre Cloth, when it’s done I use Armor-All Protector, but on and off quickly.

Take a read of the attachment it might give you few tips - Dave 😊

Fabrics (colourful) are often applied to car dash areas in the Middle East. Stops reflections and dash plastics becoming very crispy. Likely similar in California.

Used black felt on my Picasso but not rigid enough if air got under it. The tailored mat I have from www.aliexpress.com is excellent - wouldn't have anything else now.

Just put qashqai in search - amazing what they sell. Nearly everything I've bought has arrived within 14-20 days.

Just use a microfilm cloth and warm water to thoroughly clean away any polish that may have been applied. It will dry matt and problem solved. Worked for me after I initially used dash cleaner which left a gloss finish which caused reflection.

Morning, just done the Lidl run out here and what did I find Auto Cleaners for the Car Interior. It might be worth keeping an eye out for these in the UK just as a test, they might work. You can’t go far wrong with the cost so I bought a pack and will give them a try - Just for your information - Dave 🙂
These Clothes are a pack of 30x Lidl W5 Wet Cockpit Towels for Matt or Silk Gloss Finishes. It is stated that they are for Cleaning and maintenance of Plastic Surfaces with Anti-Static & Anti-Dust effect. Cost €1,73 (£1,57)
