Interior Console Repaint

I've scoured the forums and I feel like I have gotten a great answer so hopefully you guys can help.

How should I go about repainting/refurbishing the cup holders to remove the scratches and wear? I know plasti-dip isn't a good idea for these parts of the console as they get to much wear and the plasti-dip scratches off.

Everything will scratch off. Even oem replacement. It'll just last longer

If prepped properly, I wonder if Dupli-Color Vinyl/Fabric paint would do the trick? Really not ideal though, as replacing the parts will be the easiest / best looking solution.

Consider looking around your local junkyards, as E46's are showing up more and more often now. Perhaps you'll find something nice. Worst case, you paid a buck or two to get in, and didn't find anything nice. Then you can just order the new parts. ECS likely has the best prices.
