Carbon fiber finish...gloss or flat?

I am getting the carbon fiber interior as a free upgrade. Let's just say the dealer has really come through for us!

My question is if the finish is gloss or flat?

Any pictures or links to look at it in detail would be appreciated. Can't seem to find much info on it to this detail.

TIA

I was hoping it was flat. Never been a big fan of glossy carbon fiber in the interior.

Now I don't have to remove it to be redone with a flat clear. Thanks!

glass just looks more alive.
just depends on the interior, it might help to compare it looking at the interior with the gloss or matte finish

I am not sure, who will make glosy carbon fiber interior for 4 series? Bet M Performance interior kit is dry carbon with alcantara leather. And it is relatively inexpensive

Go to the Photo Gallery and pull up VIGA 435 and look at his interior pics.
