This is the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8's dash. See the nice stitching?

Follow the jump for the problem with this white stitching.

If you look closely you can see the stitching reflected in the windshield, right at about driver's eye level. In all honesty, I'm surprised this showed up in the photo. If you click on the photo to enlarge it you can see it more clearly.

The reflection isn't a huge problem, it's just something that I notice on occasion--although I'm struck by it when I do. The light has to be just right (or wrong), and it's usually only right after I hop in and start driving. Shortly after I guess my eyes adjust and I rarely notice it the rest of that drive.
