My drivers door has the same "flaking", although I think it is more likely from something rubbing against the plastic when entering and exiting the car. My passenger door doesn't have that marking.
Well, I discovered the cause of the flaking, it's the seat belt being released. I'm short, so when I adjust my seat, it's way in front of that area I showed you by a good 10" or so. When the belt releases it whacks the door with the hard part of the connector. Not much I can do about that.

I still prefer leather. I love the smell of it, the way it wears and how even on the hottest days, it does not get as hot as vinyl. You don't stick to it either :P
