You already know this, but CF leather has nothing to do with carbon fiber, it is just a name BMW gave it because of the small resemblance. now if it were actually carbon fiber i could understand your argument about being poser-ish, but i'm not sure you'd feel the same way about it had BMW given it a different name. I think it is popular because it is unique to the M3 and because its something new. IMO, wood trim does not belong on the M3. the aluminum silver brushed gray whatever its called, however, is a good option.
