CF steering wheel trim

Where can I find a matte steering wheel trim in CF that is close to the carbon leather bmw trim? I can only seem to find the glossy CF ones.

Honestly, I've never seen one out there... That's not to say that it hasn't been done, but I'd think it would be too difficult since the CF trim is actual leather instead of plastic.

If I remember correctly, I remember seeing one that's matte and looks close (not exactly) to the bmw trim. It looked really good! I'll wait a couple of days, if I don't find it, i'll just get the gloss one.

You can order the vinyl wrap that looks very similar. I believe 3M makes it.

Just google carbon leather vinyl wrap and you should be able to find a vendor.

I am thinking about wrapping my steering wheel trim and the center console trim to match as close as possible the carbon leather trim.

You could try a matte clear paint on it.
