This is obviously an over seas car as no one would be dumb enough to install that in clear site and then post a pic online.

The plastic is fine, it's the finish that sucks.

They'll all do it sooner or later... it's an age/humidity/storage problem... well known...

Just clean it all off and paint them with satin black.

there's www.stickynomore.com if you're too lazy to do it yourself.

Actually, Its not a "lazy" thing... it's a big time soaker to do it AND getting the little switches apart and back together properly is quite tricky as they all look similar but actually have tiny subtle differences and you have to be very careful not to mix up the tops/middles/bottoms incorrectly...

or lose the spring loaded cantbefounds that shoot out when you pop 'em open.

Yep.  Usual stuff.

And it's a seriously tedious job to clean, but it can be done.

Mild detergent only, and nothing abrasive.  Then let the fun begin...

I've never tried mild detergent, but I can imagine it to be near useless.

I know some good pharmacists.. Its chemical warfare... but it makes it a lot quicker....

And for the final touch, new facia panels are available for the heater controls area on 355/456/550 etc...

Never had one with that problem, seen them a lot on earlier models, also seen it on older maseratis, easy enough to clean. I wouldn't bother replacing them or refinishing them as they look better with the plastic stuff taken off anyway
You can say I'm wrong, but my garage doesn't agree with that statement!!!

You can probably imagine lots of weird shit if you know some good pharmacists.

In fact pharmaceutical issues could explain a lot with you.   :D

Yeah I remember wondering why they needed to be coated with anything in the first place...  maybe it was a touchy feely thing...
