    I was wondering if anyone has pictures that they could share, showing white leather with carbon fiber vs with piano black. IIRC, the white is really more of a beige than snow white, correct?

    Piano black looks really smooth and shiny (could reflect sun light into the eyes at the most inopportune times :). What kind of material is it in reality? Wood? Plastic? How scratch resistant is it, and does it really live up to its 'fingerprint magnet' name?

    I am leaning towards CF, just not sure how well it goes with the headliner color and the white leather seats. I wonder if there are any owners who have taken delivery and have this configuration.

    I ordered the Piano Black. (CF would've been preference if I went for the perf, and I was debating the matte Obeche but the wife "forced" me to go for the Piano Black :)). Not sure about the material underneath, but it has a lacquer finish just like a grand piano. At the Get Amped event I took a fingernail to the Piano Black finish and pushed/scratched as hard as I could, and couldn't make a single mark. Take a knife to it and I'm sure it's a different story...but the point is it seems to be as scratch resistant or more than any other trim choice.
