    The LS has a beautiful interior. But the silver center console, to me, never really mixed well with the wood grain trim bits on the dash and door. I ordered some mid gloss, black carbon fiber vinyl wrap, and decided I am going to wrap only the silver bits. I have a quick photoshop rendition of what I think it will look like, feel free to share opinions if you like/dislike. I wont take any negative criticism personally (I'll just block you and go cry in a corner XD jokes)

    Worst case scenario, if it looks like crap, I'll peel it off and order a different type or wrap ($20 on amazon, not a significant cost to modernize the interior¯\_(ツ)_/¯ )

    Here's the wrap and photoshop rendition for now. Will update with final results in the next couple days when I finish.

      I'm thinking that it will probably look very nice with your black interior. OTOH, with my "dark stone" (I think that is what it is called), and medium light stone interior, not so much.

      I've seen a bunch on Facebook as well. It always looks exactly like a CF-print vinyl wrap.

        I haven had time as of yet, but hopefully tomorrow I will try and take a shot at it. Will keep this updated.

        should look pretty good. Ive used both a 3D matte vinyl on my tool box and a high gloss 4D vinyl on some of my interior parts of one of my other cars and they are almost indistinguishable from the real CF shift knob I have.

          I'm 100% with you on doing away with the silver. In my opinion, it's out of place in a true full black on black interior (black head liner versions).

          That being said, with no intention of disrespect, the carbon fiber weave look also has no place in luxury cars. Tacky is the first word that comes to mind. A flat, satin, or semi gloss black for a smooth transition will look best.
