    Has anyone ordered the Carbon Fiber interior?

    I've had the piano black in other cars and it's shiny and attracts fingerprints.

    But $800 for CF, ouch.

    Thoughts??

    I have the carbon fiber interior trim and I really am happy with it. It doesn't show fingerprints like the glossy surfaces. I didn't have to pay extra because I ordered my P85+ in May before the price increase. Before the price increase you had to order a performance to get carbon fiber.

    I prefer to think of it as just $150 more than anything but the shiny piano black default (which I don't like). Before the price increase when the other options were all free it was a bigger jump...

    I also have it, well worth it to me. I prefer sporty of classy, so it seemd to be the only options that provided that feel.

    It was something like $6000 in the Roadster! Think of it as a bargain.

    I have it and like it very much.

    I have the CF interior as well, and it is 100% real. They had to take off one of the panels to put a little foam tape behind it as it was resonating with some of our crappier highways around here. The backside looks exactly like the front and it has a nice texture you can actually feel the fibers.

    $850??? What a steal.
    I paid $10k for my CF interior (the main reason to get performance on my Sig).

    Any one with pics of either tan leather or grey with the carbon fiber trim? I am getting white or pearl white exterior. Thanks

    I'd consider paying the $900CAD for the trim, but then I'd pretty much have to also pay the $1600CAD for that little speck of a matching spoiler to be taped on...it's not that nice, IMO.

    Carbon Fiber may be lightweight, but it's not like the piano black weighs as much as an actual piano, either.
