Ahh... cracked... yep, very common. I even talked to Heritage about the
wood... he said big thing is MB doesn't paint the back side... so moisture
gets in there... But still he can't guarantee it won't crack again.

I have had a lot of experience with varnish on boats, and would follow
your suggestion if I could depend on the finish standing up to
exposure. Unfortunately, varnished wood exposed to sunlight for long
periods (if you have a convertible the top is almost always down, even
when it's cold) requires periodic attention and touch up.
Removing the console cover requires pulling the radio, AC, and gear
shift, and is not the sort of job I would like to have to repeat every
year or so.
