We seriously considered using Obece/Lacewood for deck finishes, but have encountering problems with color matching. We will offer CF and other finishes (as yet to be determined) as extra cost options as well as choice in side upholstery colors as extra cost options.
The standard CCI model will come with black synthetic leather sides and a black deck. This matches the aesthetic that TM developed for the center channel area, regardless of the interior options chosen. It works very well with Lacewood (what I have in my Model S) and should not clash in any way with the other finishes because the CCI sits quite low in the cabin, out of visual range of the other trim.
We hope to post in-car pics of the alpha fabricated version of the CCI in about 3 weeks (we're slightly behind our fabrication schedule but ahead of schedule on installation testing using our prototypes). We continue to plan for a late 4Q12 product release.
