Hello everyone! My MS75D will be arriving next week and I have the CF decor trim. Has anyone found a matte film that is a close match to the OEM CF decor pattern and matte finish? I’m looking to cover a few small areas that will be close to the oem trim and it would be great to have them match. I’m just that way I suppose. :) Any suggestions/links to Amazon pages would be great. I’m looking forward to getting the car and joining the community!

Thanks!!

Thanks for the info, I'll have to find the matte version on Amazon ... right now, my plan is to wrap the center flip up door that houses the USB ports / phone connection. IMHO this should have been covered as well by Tesla in the vehicle's coordinating matching trim. Once I get the car, I'll see if there are any other small omissions. There's a page on Teslaratti showing how to remove the side center tunnel trim to be able to remove the door.

Make sure to post pics when you're done. I've thought about this as well.

Here is comparison between OEM carbon fiber and 3M film. With and without flash. 3M film is textured unlike the smooth finish of the OEM

Thanks for the pics. The pattern is very similar but the sheen is quite different. I assume that this is the matte version of the film?

3m has only one finish which is textured vvivid has different aproach and their films are with smooth finish but never got a chance to combere side by sidewith real carbon fiber. You can take a look at the carbon fiber films on their website: The VViViD Shop

P.S. The film is on the left!

Still have to do passenger trim. SUPER easy install with an exacto knife or equivalent.

Can easily cover all trim with a 60x12 roll. https://www.amazon.com/3M-CFS12-BLA...pID=51UnCOlXZbL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch

With the arm rest though I had to do it in 2 parts to get the CF to go in the right direction. because of where the arm rests sit, you will never see the seam.

Any scare about cutting the leather with the knife? That's the only reason I'm considering taking the trim off. What you did looks great!
