Has anyone here taken delivery of an X with the dark ash trim? I'd love some pictures. I'll have mine soon enough, but it's been interesting to see how popular the figured ash is.
I would love to see some pictures of dark ash as well, I really would have preferred piano black but not offered so looking for something similar.
Yes, but I need to see them in person. I might go to the local showroom and peak at what they have. Maybe at some point the will have the dark ash and figured ash as well.Why not go for the carbon fiber then? That'll be much closer to the piano black than any wood look.
Don't know first hand but I saw a post where someone claimed they asked and were told they were real wood.
That would be impressive and surprising frankly. I must say that I personally went with carbon fiber assuming the woods were faux plastic.
I don't know about cars in the US, but over here, when you buy a car with wood trim, it is generally always real wood veneer. At least in premium cars like Merc, Audi, BMW, Jaguar, Volvo etc. As Tesla is also marketed as a premium brand, I would expect them to also use real wood veneer. And from what they have on show in the store here, it certainly looks very much like the real thing. If it isn't, cudos to the supplier for such convincing looking materials.
Not sure about the CF though, just don't know enough about how to discern whether a CF looking material is the real deal or not.
So I thought I had my mind made up after seeing the picture of the dark ash, then today I went to the showroom and saw the gloss obeche sample against the tan leather and liked that look.
