Cheesy soft fiber liner in the rear wheel wells!

OK, I just picked-up my new baby and I absolutely love this car! There is nothing like this fabulous 5.0 and the new body and interior of this convertible make it, by far, the best convertible Mustang ever!

But, I do have a grumble. The rear wheel wells are lined with a cheesy fiber-like cloth that looks like it may last 10 days or so before it completely deteriorates. Reminds me of the liner under the mat in the trunk. It is not even trimmed nicely, but instead looks like someone tore it by hand where it terminates near the suspension. I can't believe this is the wheel liner. It actually seems like something that should have been used as a sound deadener in the interior, covered by some other, more substantial material. It's going to get soaked with water and fall apart I guarantee. What were they thinking?

It's there for to dampen sound from pebbles and things being thrown around the wheel wells by the tires. My 2011 has it too. Nothing new.
