Default Carrera T gloss black interior trim

I am shopping for a CPO Carrera T. 99% of them come with gloss black interior trim. It looks good in pictures, but how is it in real life? Does it get scratched easily and is a fingerprint magnet?

I found one Carrera T that has brushed aluminum interior trim. Would you pick that over gloss black trim?

I didn't like the black plastic trim in my T. Definitely a dust and fingerprint magnet. I bought the Anthracite Brushed Aluminum Trim from another Rennlister that took it out of his GT3 and absolutely love it.

If you see a T with Aluminum trim, it is definitely not factory installed since the only options when ordering were the standard black plastic or the leather trim.

Here's my post from the Carrera T owners thread with pics:

I changed it to carbon fiber. No regrets

Love mine. It doesn't get any more dirty than other interior bits, just shows it more. It's a few seconds work to clean up if you see something that bothers you. Driver's car...

This in the passenger door pocket solves any issues related to the black trim which is unique to our cars and looks good IMO.

I do like some of the darker aluminum trims also, just not sure it's worth the upgrade at this point.

I didn’t like the look of the shiny black plastic, so opted for the no-cost leather trim option instead, when I ordered my Carrera T last year. Very happy with it.

No cost leather FTW.

Carbon Fiber Interior FTW! Looks amazing with black / agate grey, silver exterior and black / burgundy & black dual tone interior.

For my BlackOptics sensibilities, I avoid aluminum and chrome as much as possible (and, I don't like to see the reflections in the windows). I have piano black trim in my last three cars, and I've never had an issue.
