    I am window shopping on some Model 3 upgrades, but thoughts on custom steering wheels: go with real carbon fiber or open pore wood?

    If I go with carbon fiber, I would preferably have a matching dashboard.

    The wood looks smoother than the Model 3 dashboard.

    Not really a fan of either, but carbon fiber is slightly better. Wood version looks awful.

    For carbon fiber version, I much prefer this one better.

    I'm not a fan of the RPM Tesla one because the weave is significantly smaller than the Model S and X matte carbon fiber trim. Makes it look overdone or too spotty. In other words, not as tasteful when paired with a wrapped or real carbon fiber dashboard.

    I'd prefer whichever one is heated.
