As far as I know its just painted plastic same as half of your cars bodywork and so a medium abrasive shouldn't do it any harm, there is possibly a difference in clearcoat. I've used poorboys 2.5 on mine without any problems.
If there are stubborn scratches you can use a drill or dremel tool to rotary polish out pretty much any scratch that hasn't exposed the base plastic with the use of a backing plate and polishing pad, your trim will look like new and it will be a lot cheaper and less hassle than swapping it for another. I'd really recomend wrapping the centre console though, I rarely get scratches or swirls elsewhere and the interior has been much less maintenance since.
