Piano Black or Wood Shifter with M-tech Wheel?

Just ordered an M-tech steering wheel (punched leather) from Sweden.
I also ordered the matching cover (black with M logo) cause I don't like
the aluminum trim on the bottom of the factory wheel.

That leaves my aluminum topped selector lever.

Should I go with matching wood or the Piano black shifter?

My e-brake handle was already black and I'm wondering should I get the punched m-tech cover for it to match my wheel?

No wood is good wood.

Exactly. Screw wood. I think Im about to get the CF steering wheel cover piece. Has anyone else had problems with the steering wheel where its almost like a thin layer of paint of coming off of it? I have it a little on the wheel and a little on the drivers door, where you grab to close it.

I'd definitely get M-Tech perf leather for both the e-brake (it's cheap) and shifter (It's f'in fantastic)

Unless you have an automatic, in which case Piano Black would probably be a reasonable second choice.
