    California wheel wells

    Last week I took a California for a test drive. One design feature I did not understand was the material lining the wheel wells. Rather than using a smooth plastic which makes cleaning easy, as in my C4S, the interior of the wheel arch is made of what looks like sound deadening material. I imagine that it will get very dirty as soon as driven on any wet or muddy (good heavens, imagine that!), but will also be very difficult to clean and probably rot quite quickly. Is this same stuff on other Fcars?

    Our  5 year old VW Beetle has the same material (if I understood well) without any problems so far.

    The Maserati GranTurismo has the same wheel arch liners and they are fine. They can be cleaned when dry using a stiff brush believe it or not.  I'm pretty sure they are used to deaden noise from rock chips etc. The F430 on has plastic liners and they are not even full width in the front wheel arches.
