Interior Dust

I've only had my F20 for a week and the interior nav screen and speedometer binnacle are already covered in dust. Whats the best way to clean these without scratching the screen? Is a microfibre cloth the softest thing you can get?

i have the same question, the 8.8 inch screen looks like there is a film on it, what i mean is it looks very dirty.

Stop! Don't use a cloth, not even a soft microfibre one.

Instead, get yourself a high quality soft-bristled paint brush. Make up brushes also work.

The plastic/acrylic surfaces in our cars are really sensitive, and I've found brushing to be the best way to tackle them.
