Question Best 3M CF Wrap to Match OEM Carbon Leather Trim??

From those of you with 1st hand experience:

Is the 3m 1080 3D carbon fiber wrap the closest match to the Carbon Leather Trim & door panel armrests that come on the M3?

If not, which is?

It's fairly close if you are just going for that look, but if you already have the carbon leather trim and want to match some other interior bits I don't think its close enough, it is noticeably different and they will look odd next to each other.
Sorry I can't advise anything closer though because I don't believe there to be anything, I have seen a lot of carbon effect vinyls and while many are more convincing as actual cf none really look that much like the carbon leather.

Thanx for the reply - guess I'll give it a shot - I'm using it to cover a gage pod mounted in front ashtray.

Dash/door trims are carbon leather, door panels are M3 with carbon leather armrests, & front/rear console trims are brushed aluminum.

So the item wrapped is seperated fairly well from other cf leather items and contrasting to the aluminum trim it's mounted on
