Does this piece come in leather from the factory?

Trying to convert my interior non-extended pieces into extended leather.

So far, I know I can change the center console sides, lower dash, and glove box.

Does anyone know if the center console *cover* is leather? It feels softer than the plastic, but not quite as soft as the seats, so I'm not sure if it's leather or plastic. I have a 2013 if it makes any difference.

And if indeed it is plastic, does anyone know if this can be ordered in leather?

Im pretty sure its tightly wrapped with leather. Not positive if thats the same for every interior trim you get though. I have seen picture of people with carbon leather trim that have leather wrapped consoles. Id have to go searching for a picture of it though

Tightly wrapped leather would be a good way to describe how it feels to the touch.

i think the dash is one piece. I had a issue with my extended leather and they ordered an entire new dash.

yeah, it's one piece. Only the lower half is in leather. I wish the entire would be in leather since one has to order the entire piece.
