    Help with picking interior trim type, real photos?

    So I am P6316 and figure at the current rate I will be asked to configure fairly soon. The only thing I am not to sure about is the interior trim I want. Here is what I plan on getting:

    60kWh
    Silver with body colored roof
    19 wheels
    Grey Leather
    Tech Package
    Sound Studio Package
    Air Suspension
    Parcel Shelf

    I am leaning towards Lacewood or Piano Black. Here is what the design studio shows me:

    Matte Obeche:

    Thoughts? Also does anyone have some real life pictures of the various trims?

    Thanks,

    As I've said elsewhere, I prefer the lacewood because all of the other options look too "plasticky" for my taste (particularly the piano black and glossy obeche). The lacewood is unique and attractive in person, to my eye.

    One of the store advocates showed me that the matte obeche brings out the grey colors of the wood more, while gloss brings out the browns.

    Interesting. I do have small kids and so was leaning against the Matte option as a result. I pretty much like them all on the dash but having it cover the opportunity console has me wanting to really thinking it though; as shown here:

    It'd be better if they could go horizontal with the grain... It does look a bit odd but we are still going with gray leather and matte obeche.

    I think the Obeche looks dated and unattractive. Like faux wood paneling that was prominent in the 70's. I like the simplicity of the piano black but wish they offered a matte version of it. I'll withhold judgement on the Lacewood until I see it in person.

    The Motor Trend review that just came out a few days ago has a few pics of the glossy obeche--there were limited pictures of that finish elsewhere, as I recall.

    I ended up getting Piano black with black interior, as my wife said no to any wood-like finish...although I could've gone with matte obeche.

    Of course my favorite was the carbon fiber...but a bit too much of a stretch for me.

    If I couldn't get cf I'd go lacewood I think. I liked the banana leaf so when it disappeared it made my choice to cf easy!
