Good choice on the steering wheel column. I di that also and I have seen it in person- worth it. It is an option easy to omit but certainly stand out to the Driver with the stitching on the steering wheel

Don't know technical differences of powder coating vs other methods of finishing so can't comment, but yes I agree based on recollection that platinum GT3 wheels (at least parts of) appear to be satin finish.

Not flat. Flat too difficult to keep clean.

Picture below is what I think of when talking about satin finish.

I do like the stitching on the steering column, but you'll only see it when you're entering your car or in the unlikely event that you're riding in the passenger seat.
