I've seen them removed before - the pillars are already painted underneath. It's a pain to remove the vinyl (it's glued) but it looks good once removed.

If you want to stay with the black look just pull the vinyl and lay a new sheet on there.

You can use the vinyl paint they use on seats. Regular paint will just flake off over time. How bad is the scuff?

Default Paint ?

If it's not too deep, you can try heating it with a heat gun to "heal" it. Don't go too crazy on it or you will burn it. You can also use a butane torch, just keep the flame moving and don't get too close. Keep a hand next to it and if it's too hot for your hand it's getting close to being too hot for the vinyl.
