2021 vs 2020 looks and interior

I was a bit disappointed when I went to trade my 2020 sr+ in for a 21 performance........I didn't like the new console or matte plastics or the black exterior trim. I know that most people like the black trim (I prefer the chrome as long as it has bright wheels to match) but what is the forum consensus on the interior? To me it looked like some nissan. I keep my car very clean so piano black and clean look I liked.

What does everyone think? The only thing I can say I do like better is the automatic trunk, and that never really mattered to me.
the fact that there was (is) a huge secondary market to cover up that interior piano black trim speaks volumes. I had the same piano black on the dash of my 2010 Mazda Miata - it's tired.

on the other hand, the door trim on the 2021 Model 3 is a bit Nissan Altima looking - not a fan. Bracing for when this makes its way to the Y.

Wrap the trim and door handles in something you do like. I've been trying to find the right dark/brushed copper/bronze to complement the Blue car I have on order (Genesis did it really well in some G70 trims that I saw a while back). Original plan was to do all the chrome trim, but now that its blacked out, probably just do door handles and emblems.
