I didn***8217;t notice this until last night I was cleaning the center climate panel ***8211; some kind of unremovable oil stain on the edge of plastic cover (seems to be in/underneath the plastic)!

These are totally invisible under day lights but pretty obvious under flashlights. I only see those on the left side and I***8217;m not sure if it is "common". :eek:

Has someone put Armorall or cleaner on the dash and mistakenly got it on the panel? That's what it looks like to me because it runs the exact same line as the dash panel. Get your BMW shop to clean/fix it. They will do that for you when you bring it in for service.

I only see something runningg kind of parallel with the panel, almost band-like. If this is what you are referring to I think it may be the leather / plastic going under the edge of the panel (I suppose the panel may be translucent).
