Has anyone else had this problem? It looks and feels like a rubber coating peeling off my dash. The part that is peeling is a flat black and the one under I this a shiny black ...

I have that on mine too. I believe it is vinyl paint. I plan on removing the top of the dash, wet sanding it lightly with 600 grit wet/dry sandpaper and respraying it, probably with duplicolor vinyl/fabric paint. If I can't match the interior then I'll be painting the center console, the pillars, and probably the center dash section / control panel bezel.

That would be the vinyl paint peeling. I tried duplicolor spray but i got tiger stripes so i used plastidip. had it for about 2 months and its still holding up strong

I just peeled it all off. Looks good but it is annoying in the sun!

Thankfully this has only been limited to my airbag cover.

Please keep you peeling ass dash cover cars away from mine! Shit's probably contagious! :lol:
