Took mine in for inspection pics yesterday - was in and out in less than 10 minutes. Around this time last year I wrapped my door panels in vinyl because they looked so bad - I told him I really wanted him to push hard to get the glove box, center console, and lower portion of the dash replaced and I didn't care about the door panels (plus to prove how bad they are I'd have to remove the vinyl wrapping which I don't want to do). He mentioned the door panels run just under $2k each - and if someone needed absolutely everything replaced it was about $10k. So I figure the stuff I need replaced is only about $2k - he said my interior looked similar to others he has seen that have gotten full replacement approved so I have my fingers crossed.

Drivers side vent.
I had similar issue at my Lexus dealer ..I took my 07 with cracked door panels and they said it wasn't covered also said they weren't sticky ..I told her that it's freezing out so they won't get sticky .. I'm just going to wait until the summer time and try it again

It appears that one confirmed black door panel replacement has occurred on this warranty enchantment program.
I have gray interior and have been waiting for the parts to come in since mid Nov.
If you have yours replaced can you specify your interior color so we can have an idea if they are getting replaced randomly.

Guess I need to give them a call, haven't heard anything yet and I know they saw mine before yours. What colorway is your interior again? NMV, I see in your post above.

Okay, so they're waiting on all 4 door panels for mine, everything else has arrived though. The waiting game continues....

Yeah. My console is like yours. Panel under steering wheel and top gray section on doors get bad once it gets above 70 on a sunny day.

Hey guys on quite on topic... my lower pillars near the door are not in good condition, I would want to have the re-wrapped. Will cost me 60 usd a pillar, however the issue is, the design is faulty so it may get messed up again soon.

I found the new new replacement model however there does not seem to be an option anywhere even on parts sites that have in in black leather/pleather. All I see is plastic .

*** ignore this I found better pics of the part it is indeed covered in pleather***

Yep, They redesigned the pillar. I posted mine a while ago.

The redesigned pillar isn't much better.
