Default Peeling paint on temp and fan control levers on 997

I have an issue starting that I read isn't unique to me. The paint on my temp and fan control knobs is peeling on my 997 4S. I found the parts online at: http://climarepair.com/porsche-repla...ir-revolution/ but the replacement is a little involved. I called Tysons and they say they only replace the entire unit for around $1100. Is there anyone in the area who would be willing to just do the parts replacement at a reasonable price? Sorry if this thread is already on the site (I googled and couldn't find it). Anyway, I live in Fairfax and before I tried it myself I wanted to see what the service cost would be. Thanks! Craig

Thanks. I'll order the MACarbon ones. Still looking for someone to install at a reasonable price!
