I am trying to finish up my configuration decisions, and am struggling with the interior trim choices.
I am a bit worried about the Matte Finishes not holding up long term near the cup holder area. What if some hot coffee spills in this area and you don't notice it? Wood and water generally don't mix well on furniture, why would that be different in a car?
I'm not so worried about fingerprints on the front panel as a driver will be cleaning fingerprints regularly on the touch screen anyways. So you'll always have a little cloth handy.
Leaning towards gloss obeche with black leather, grey exterior. I think the lacewood is too warm for the grey car, and the piano black with this combination reads quite high tech.
I noticed too that the top part of the car interior is always light tan, so bringing a bit of warm stripes in the Obeche ties it together.
