FYI - I had a chance to buy an OEM carbon fiber dash trim kit to swap out with the piano black trim in my 2015 S. I followed the directions here:

How to add a Carbon Fiber Interior Trim to the Model S - TESLARATI.com

The directions were very useful but I found a few spots where I had questions and sorta figured it out. Anyway - the whole process was easier than I thought (took about an hour) for those considering it and I put together a few video clips of the process here that weren't necessarily as clear in some of the written instructions:

Cheers-

Thanks for sharing this. Do you have any final pics showing the after result for your project? I'm curious how it looks before I attempt it. I'm bookmarking this thread so I can try this out when I'm ready to tackle another project. :)

Yes, thanks for posting this. As much as I love the Carbon, now I know... I'm gonna stick with my Obeche. ha!

You explained things clearly and THANK YOU for pointing out the "Gotchas"!

No problem - glad you guys enjoyed it.

The "after" pic would be OEM - because it looks that way as you would expect (unless I ended up with a few extra screws :))

UThomas, I wrote the guide for teslarati/teslafied.eu, could you tell me what info you were missing so I can correct the article?

FrederikC - thanks for making that! For me it was mostly things like "how many screws" or "what exactly is the padded panel under the steering wheel?" I think a few dozen more pictures would have helped me have more confidence on "am I about to break this or are we good?" :) But hopefully this complements it well.
