    Anyone have a real/non-design studio pic of this combo? I ordered it, and imagine it will add to the two-tone nature of the tan interior.

    Someone did a photoshop pic when the next gen seats were announced.
    It looks really good.

    If no one has a picture, you can call the Oak brook, IL Tesla store as they have one and see if they will take a picture for you. I ran over there after ordering mine to look at that combination (which I also got) and it looks great!

    I know it's not quite what you asked for, but here's a photo of the grey leather interior with black Alcantara headliner. Might be close enough to imagine with tan leather, the light /dark contrast is similar ; I think it'll look good.

    You are a day too short....I just had a loaner yesterday morning with Tan and Black Alcantera headliner. Looked pretty good too. Call the Orlando store, and ask Peter to take some pictures.

    Sorry, they had it about 3 weeks ago when I was there. Hopefully Orlando still has it per the post below. I can tell you that I was a bit apprehensive about having a black roof, but the combination looked great, and the fact I didn't have to worry about the inevitable scuffs anymore was nice as well.

    What I like about that combination is it brings it back to 2-tone instead of 3. it would be ok if the headliner matched the seats, however if that's not going to happen, it should at least match the lower part of the interior. I like the black with the tan seats. I think it looks great.

    I don't think it will be too dark if you get the panoramic roof. With a solid roof... well that might be overly dark.

    Thanks 403portside that looks great.

    I've gone for the pano roof but I think it'd be find even without it, my current car's an Audi with light seats and a black headliner and it's not too dark, even with our rubbish UK weather...

    Yep I have the pano roof as well. One other consideration is matching the dash alcantara with the headliner, which we can do nicely now. Also, even the previous three-tone setup didn't really bother me in my now-gone P85+

    Those are the colors I've ordered too. I've seen it here in the Netherlands and it looked absolutely stunning.

    This is what I had ordered, including the gloss trim. I subsequently changed the trim from gloss to matte because I was concerned about glare. You can see the trim to the left of the steering wheel in the above pic. With just a little gloss showing it's reflecting an image from the outside. While I still think the combo looks great, I didn't want to take the risk of glare in my eyes.

    Otherwise i love the fact the headliner matches the bottom now and the alcantara dash.

    The only question left for me will be... is it worth it? So many things I want to have on a new Model S, but it's already a lot of money (coming from a guy who spent $14,000 on his last car, and less than $10,000 on each of his previous ones)
    If I go alcaterra, I think it will be the black, but can I really justify alcaterra at all?

    I know... I know... first world problems...

    I felt the same way. My first car I go the cloth headliner because the extra money seemed ridiculous. But on the 85D I'm getting the black Alcantera. The way the headliner comes down the B pillar really bugs me when it doesn't match the rest of the car.

    I have seen two S's with the black Alcanterra headliner. Both had the Pano roof so it was not too dark at all. Another benefit if the darker trim is that it does not show dirt or fingerprints.
    It unifies the color around the door pillars. Andrewket is correct regarding the glare off of the gloss trim, not to mention the fact that
    the gloss shows dust and finger smudges rather easily whereas the matte finish tends to minimize those.
    Again, the Tesla website could be improved greatly with some nice representative photography of the various interior trim combos in
    both daylight and evening. Just sayin'

    I had the obeche gloss on my P85+ and ordered it on my P85D. There is gloss, but not any distracting glare IMO. Actually, for a change I first spec'd the D with matte but thought it looked a tad unrefined when I saw it in person. Choice is a great thing :)

    Excited to hear the comments about the black headliner though!

    I'm glad to hear that, 403portside, because I've got Obeche Glossy in my config and was a little worried when Andrewket changed his config from Glossy to Matte, citing glare as his concern. This time of year, with a pano roof, driving northbound around midday frequently causes glare on the 17" and the center console; the lacewood trim I have now never produces glare.
