because of the nature of the scratches and the material (Toyota AURIS 2017) they have no clue what to do, we proposed a cash settlement and we'll forget all about it.. they asked us to come back with a price. What should I charge? it's 3 small but very clear scratches on the dashboard.

This is not a US sold vehicle so I have no labor time or price info on it but the only way to completely repair it is to replace the dash pad completely.

The part is probably worth over $500 and the labor to change it could be 8-10 hours so I doubt they would ever agree to that much. Just determine what it's worth to you to live with the scratches.

That sounds reasonable.

Not my area but looked at what it takes out there. OMG it's involved!
Idea: See a used car dealer some would have tricks if just scratches. Color may be a paint/dye a new one might only be grey?

In short, more $$ if that can't be I call it faked nice again ASK seeing it in person will really help.

You may pay a little help to zoom in on cost of a real repair/replacement.

While looking like you did to find here was close or exact to a Toyota Camry. Different destinations new can and will have different specs required the US and Canada are the worst IMO on that,
