Carbon Fiber or Natural Grain Walnut

Was going to go for carbon fiber for sure but since I have all this time to wait, I've been rethinking my interior choices. I'm starting to sell myself on the natural grain walnut as it seems not glossy but rather satin. Haven't seen either in person so thought I'd ask if anyone out there has one or the other and what do you prefer and why, meaning are there any advantages or disadvantages. Is one prone to scratching easier? Thanks.

I have the walnut. It is satin and I love it. No scratches or other signs of wear after the first 2,500 miles of driving and I’m kind to my interior but by no means drive it with ‘white gloves’

There's a whole thread on this here. Search "open pore ash". Good luck.

BTW, don't do the Carbon Fiber. Beta

Changed to the Black Flamed Open Pore Ash from Carbon Fiber today. Think we'll like this better, fingers crossed.
