    Removed this from our 2013 P85 to put in carbon fiber. Kit is in great condition except for a small crack in the armrest (see picture, this was there when we bought the car).

    $350 shipped in the USA.

    Mine has a crack in the exact same spot when I picked up my CPO. Tesla replaced it no questions but I wonder if there is an engineering flaw with that spot.

    How big of a job is it to do the swap?

    The swap on the arm rest is pretty easy, 5 min job.

    The dash is anywhere from 30 min to 2 hours depending upon your experience level with taking the dash apart.

    Purchased the CF kit from a local in the San Diego area.

    I'm not selling the CF kit. I pulled the Obeche Wood kit out to install the CF kit.

    CF looks fantastic. It probably is much better not showing as much dust.

    What's the trick for removing the arm rest panel? I removed the two screws under the cup holders, released the fasteners on the front and rear by pulling up. No problem. But the center fasteners seemed REALLY tight or maybe secured by screws. I didn't want to force anything.

    Thanks for any help with this.

    Push the armrests up fully to the front and pull up. Will take some work.

    For anyone else - this kit is still available.

    What did you pay for the CF trim?

    $800-900, and that was a "back of the truck" special. IIRC the kit is something like 2k direct from Tesla.

    I was quoted $1200 for the trim. I wonder what is that back of the truck special?
