I've heard that Piano black can be really difficult to keep scratch free. I have the black wood and it's been swirled up before by ****ty LA car washes that wipe too hard with microfiber clothes that probably arent completely clean. I was advised to always use a damp microfiber with a light touch. Alot of people spray the cloth with a quick detailer like Mequirs first. Keeping a layer of wax on it can help protect. Once you experience the inevitable swirl marks the trim can be removed and machine polished just like the clear coat of your car. It's a hassle for sure. Watch out for leaving keys. etc on the center console as well. That area seems to take the most wear and tear in my car.
