    I'm totally fine with the minimimalistic dash. In fact, I think it's going to be pretty cool. My one complaint is the wood dash (My apologies in advance, for I assume this has been debated and discussed like crazy in here, but I'm just now starting to post).

    In the descriptions of the options for the Model 3, it sounds like the wood dash is a premium option. My question is, do you have to get the wood dash? I'd much prefer a carbon fiber dash, but I don't know if it's possible.

    get some stickers. I'm sure someone will make a custom fit sticker for it... make it look like anything you want.

    We don't yet know what the dash will look like with the white interior. But as of right now the wood is the only option we've seen. I'm not a huge fan either. Probably the only real negative I've got on the car.

    As mentioned above, the white interior will almost certainly have a different color but probably still wood.

    More options will come eventually, or for the impatient it can be cured with cash and custom fabrication or a cheap vinyl wrap.

    I wonder if Tesla has to pay a licensing fee for the My Little Pony dash option.

    I'm sure other options will be available at some point, but anyone's guess what they are and when available.

    I would like a little darker color wood, more like the obeche that was in the S/X before, but will see how it looks in person. I am thinking of possibly wrapping it in carbon fiber if I don't like it as long as the wrap doesn't look cheap and cheesy.

    I think the driftwood look of the model 3 looks great, with the white seats and a dark leatherette patch here and there, I can't see any problem, if you get board with it purchase some carbon vinyl and stick that on

    The piano black base trim in Model S would look good there too. The carbon fiber thing is getting a bit played out, imho...

    i'm hoping for darker wood with the white seats. The light wood would not look good at all.

    Another one from the comments. I like this myself, i would probably choose this over the carbon fiber.

    I like that is darker, but too much "orange" color. I would like the obeche wood that they used to have.

    I would like them to make the screen so it can be retracted under the dash with the option for a HUD where voice commands can make selections without using the screen. That would make the dash a lot cleaner and still give the flexibility of using the screen.

    Actually, the early reviews seems to indicate that the interior is one of the best features of the Model 3, f.e:
