    Like most people I don't really like the wooden dash trim (looks odd) and the piano gloss black centre console looks great but it always getting covered in finger prints.
    Wanted to wrap both of these but there are so many different options out there with different prices and quality!

    It's personal preference as to which style you like but would be good to get a thread together which compares them all if there isn't one already.

    If you have wrapped then could you add and comment below with:
    1) price you paid including taxes and shipping
    2) link to where you got it from
    3) colour/type of wrap e.g. matrix black
    4) pictures of the centre console
    5) pictures of the dashboard
    6) rating out of 10
    Thanks

    Just seen some alcantara dashboards and they look great.
    Can't seem to see anywhere which sells the wraps though.
    Anyone know where I could get some which is similar to the alcantara in the doors and try a DIY job?

    Most people I've spoken to really like the wooden dash trim, actually. So I wouldn't say "like most people" you don't like it. I think it's safer to just say leave weighting out of such an opinion.

    One of the staff at Tesla Stockport has an alcantara dash in his white/black m3 - looks really good in my opinion, will ask him who did it if I see him next time I'm in there.

    I do not like the wooden dash at all.

    YouTube video of someone doing a DIY alcantara but it's in German.
    Think I'll give this a go, just need to find somewhere to get the materials from?
