    After trial and error, along with newly working with vinyl wrap, over an hour. I'm sure I can do it much faster now.

    I liked the look of a brushed black metallic look so went with the 3M black brushed metallic vinyl. Guys did a great job installing. Here's photos from our job.

    Depending on the lighting (natural and overhead LEDs) the color can look black or to me deep dark walnut brown like in the last photo. More "yellow" cast light, more brown toned. I like the vinyl a lot and love no fingerprints, but not sure when I see it in more yellow lighting. With the dash being that lighter brown wood look I think it clashes in that light looking more dark wood-grained than black metallic brushed. All a matter of taste I guess but wondering if I would have preferred something else, not sure what though.

    BTW the photos show @chojn1's son's cup inserts (two sizes).

    Tesla needs to produce the cars with a matt finish for the center console instead of the gloss finish.
    That would save money for a lot of people that only wrap the console because the gloss finish shows scratches so easily.
