Re: TRUNK ACCESS problem!
Glare off the top of the dash shouldn't be a problem, as the textures and colors are usually engineered to prevent that very issue. I've not noticed it myself, though I do admit that I usually wear my vintage Nikon (glass) polarized sunglasses when driving in bright sunlight.
Is there any chance that a "detailing" job mught have included wiping down that area with Armour All or similar plastic treatment? Those silicon-based compounds have a way of sitting on top of the otherwise dull plastic and making it shine.
BTW, I never got any sign of glare off the surface of the dash on my BMW, though I admit that car never saw the likes of any Armour All.
