I'd suggest swapping or wrapping the centre console to something black and textured which masks scratches / smudges like brushed black aluminium or carbon.
Thanks for the advice everyone.

The centre console is the worst bit for scratches.

What can I use to polish it up a bit?

I have some scratch remover for paint handy but not sure if that's the best thing possibly even that is too abrasive. Otherwise I have some AG super resin polish?

I see lots of high gloss black trim being advertised as piano black on the 'bay lol!
