i am concerned that the dark ash wood will scratch easily and have visible scratches and smudges?
It does scratch but shouldn't be a concern if you don't touch it a lot
I chickened out and went with the cream and figured ash wood!
The dark ash scratches terribly, especially the center console cover door.
I actually just had my dark ash replaced with carbon fiber because of this.
Thanks so much for sharing that! Did you have it wrapped, or if replaced how much was that out of curiosity, and who did the work?
I had it replaced with the OEM carbon fiber by Tesla. It was done under goodwill for me but it’s a very long story. Suffice it to say we’ve been coming up with some “creative solutions” to make up for a poor ownership experience thus far.
Carbon fiber all the way !
Especially with whit or balck interior, dont care for it with the cream.
Did your dark ash come scratched from factory like mine did? My whole car came swirled up from the factory, or it may have been from the “detailing” before I picked it up.
I noticed the paint at delivery and they said they would fix it, but I decided not to let them try, fearing they would only make it worse. To be fair I had a door replaced and the body shop couldn’t make the newly painted door swirl free either. I think it’s just the nature of black paint.
The center console is pretty swirled up too, but I didn’t notice for a few days after I had the car, so I didn’t bother complaining.
The shinyness of the dark ash or carbon fiber were not attractive to me. The figured ash wood is matte and looks great around all the shiney stuff in the dash.
My car came with some swirls in the paint (also black) as well as some scratches on the dark ash console cover. The paint swirls I wasn’t particularly upset about because this car is my daily driver in northern climes so paint issues from salt/sand/rocks are inevitable and a wise man once told me to just accept it.
I agree that dark ash scratches easily. The console sliding door has been scuffed up since delivery
