    I am a bit worried about the Matte Finishes not holding up long term near the cup holder area. What if some hot coffee spills in this area and you don't notice it? Wood and water generally don't mix well on furniture, why would that be different in a car? I'm not so worried about fingerprints on the front panel with glossy finishes as a driver will be cleaning fingerprints regularly on the touch screen anyways. So you'll always have a little cloth handy.
