Age and Interior Choice? Wood, Carbon Fiber, Piano Black?

I am about to order the performance version and I am torn between ordering the carbon interior vs a wood interior. I know I want the tan leather at least. Advice I have received thus far is that wood tends to be for an older generation yet a bit more luxury where as the carbon fiber is younger and sportier yet not as luxurious. I am curious what others are ordering. Please share your age, interior and if you are ordering the performance model. Also feel free to share your thoughts on the subject in general. I am interested to see if there is a trend on age and interior.

40 - performance, blue/grey, carbon fibre, 21" grey wheels.

I hate wood in cars, piano black would have been my choice in a non-perf., but I'd then rather have matte black or brushed aluminium.

With the carbon fiber accents already on the car, I thought this was a good combo.

Considered the wood, but to me it looked very contemporary, and I find that anything that is contemporary now looks dated at some point in the future. (Think avacado green kitchen appliances.) The same could be said for CF, perhaps, so as others have said it really is a preference issue. IMHO the piano black was too plain and plastic-y, so I had to choose between the CF and the wood, and finally decided that the CF looked more appropriate for a performance car.

Good luck!

The alternative for those not really sure, and those that may prefer something different to what is on offer, any of the gloss finished choices, and then vinyl film wrap at any time to change the appearance. There is an almost endless choice of designs in films, including a textured carbon fibre....
Can even be considered for the sill panels all round - which is something i am considering - therefore even a standard spec sig could have a carbon fibre interior if you choose... even there, there are a range of carbon fibres.....

So far, great feedback. Thanks everyone. Its looking roughly 2/3 of the performance buyers are going with Carbon Fiber. Non Carbon Fiber is trending with mostly obeche matte and several piano black. I noticed no trend in age too which is great. All great comments. Keep them coming.

btw...in person, the colors are much different. Tan is lighter, blue exterior is darker etc.

Mid-40's. Black P85; 21" silver wheels; tan leather; debating gloss obeche vs. CF; pano; tech + sound.

I think the gloss obeche works really well to tie together the dark grey/black above the dash with the tan leather below. Wood has been in cars forever and probably will be forever. My only issue with this is whether it says "town car luxury" a bit too much. But Elon got it, so there you have it.

The carbon fiber is nice in many respects but I think it really loses definition at angles and the effect just simply gets lost unless you're looking at it fairly straight on (I started a separate thread seeking input on this from people who have actually taken delivery with the CF so please comment there if you have!!). I also worry that it's a bit too "in" and it's trying too hard to make a fast 4-door sedan into a track-worthy 2-seat sportscar with a big engine.

The matte obeche is nice, I guess I just like how the gloss brings out the color more to tie into the tan leather I'm getting. If I weren't getting tan, I'd be more tempted to get matte.

64 -- performance, brown/tan, 21" silver wheels, carbon fiber interior details (just like kishdude). FYI, when ordering in September I was told CF is only available on Performance S, which arguably is a nice cue that you're driving a P85.

31 - silver, 19" wheels, piano black, tan leather, pano roof, tech, air suspension

33 - Carbon fiber, Black Performance, Black Leather.

Details, details.

57 - New Red, Performance, Black Interior, all toys.

Age: 34. Dolphin Grey with tan, Performance with grey wheels, and obeche gloss. Not a fan of the obeche matte, but that's just personal preference.

77, 85Kwh standard, silver, black interior.

59 yrs, SIG red or new red, Tan, matte obeche, 21 inch

parking sensors

Brown, tan w/obeche matte. Delicious.

54 White with Pano on Black Performance with 21" Wheels, Tech and Obeche Gloss.

46M Pearl white, grey leather, piano black, 21" silver, tech, sound, pano roof. It's a dream come true.

42/male, Signature Red Performance, 21" silver (though wearing 19" wheels/winter tires now), black interior with CF. I changed my configuration several times after "finalizing" (I am sure I drove TM crazy). I had the same wood vs. cf dilemma, but I absolutely love what I received.

How did you get parking sensors? Aftermarket or wishful thinking. My wife could sure use parking sensors.

(Very) wishful thinking

60 female, pearl white, tan interior, obeche matte, tech, air, 85kwh

A special thanks to Sean Lafond at corporate and the Natick MA team...they spent a lot time with me today. The true Tesla difference.

I'm in the ordering process. So far I have Blue Perf, grey interior, 21" Wheels (but still deciding between grey vs silver). Matte obeche vs. lacewood (still deciding).

TheAustin:
Thanks for the tip on avoiding the GLOSS obeche. I'm in Dallas and the nearest store is in Houston, which I visited over 6 months ago and can't recall all the details of the options. So I would appreciate your pics. My email is: rajivpandit@yahoo.com. Do you have any thoughts on the 21" grey vs. silver wheels?

Hi Austin. I would also appreciate your pics of the tan interior with obeche matte. I'm at bubbletips@gmail.com

I'm 38. Planning for a blue 60kwh, tech, air, sound upgrades.

34, 60 kWh, white ext, black leather, obeche matte, pano.

Have a CLS AMG now with matte wood. I think the matte is a great contrast to the 17" screen.

47. dark grey, obeche gloss, black leather, non perf. standard wheels, tech and sound package.
