Figured Ash? Anyone got pics?

So the last detail we haven't quite decided yet is wood accent. Has anyone actually seen the figured ash? If so, got pics? This is what it looks like in the Design Studio (top pic is figured ash, bottom is matte obeche, both just slightly lightened), but I was hoping for some real pics if anyone has them. I think this is new on the Model X as the stores don't have samples of figured ash yet. I'm leaning toward the figured ash as I like how it stands out more against the black.

Thanks!

Wood looks nice! I think it is unfortunate, though, that the material on the top of the dash cannot be a lighter color, like the lower part of the dash, that would go better with the wood. Maybe someday in the future when the model line matures a bit....

I was hoping for the piano black trim, I have it on the S and like the clean look and on the X it would match the black on the back of the seats. I will need to see the trim offered for the X before I can make a decision.
Stores have Obeche Matte, Obeche Gloss and Carbon Fiber samples (all carryover from the S), but not dark ash or figured ash. Dark ash looks similar to piano black, but with some visible grain. I personally didn't much care for carbon fiber when I saw it on the sample block but it does look pretty high tech in an actual car.

But I'm wondering why they decided not to offer grey leather. I think this would have been our choice over black, had it been offered.

Me, too. We have grey in our Model S and love it. I hope the lack of it in the X does not indicate a problem with quality or color durability or something...maybe it is a perceived lack of demand and they are keeping the option list short at the start to simplify production, as they have done in the past.
 
Now that there are some signs out there wondering if someone could show pictures of the Dark Ash and Figured Ash trim.
Mark Templeton's blue sig has black leather with figured ash. So you can catch a glimpse of it in his pics and videos. Here's one:
