    Real world carbon fiber appearance

    For those of you who have the CF trim, do you find that it has good definition and clarity across the dash or does it lose definition in a big way at angles? My (limited) experience with it suggests the latter--but I've never seen a full dash in natural light. Obviously this may matter to some and not others, but for me, I want to see the dash material wherever I look and I worry that won't be the case with the CF.

    It looks very nice. It is a matte finish and not shiny/glossy like the Roadster but still looks pretty good.

    Tesla's interior CF doesn't have a strident woven appearance -- it's thinner fibres, woven flatter, than most other CFs. I can see that one might say that it "loses definition" in that sense, but it's a very attractive option.

    I've seen the carbon fiber in a friend's S and at first I thought it was just Matte black. At an angle I didn't see the cf pattern at all. But once inside and looking at it headon it was clear.
