    How many of your 355's are equipped with original carbon interior? It would be great to see some pictures.
    As far as I know, the following parts were available:
    Door sills
    Door panels (with aluminum inserts)
    F1-paddles
    Central tunnel
    Main dashboard surrounding
    Radio/meter surrounding
    Handbrake plate
    Gear knob
    Dedication plate (not sure if this was carbon)
    Sports seats

    Supposedly, the above mentioned items were available from late 1997 - about the time when the F1-transmission was available.

    Any inputs are welcome

    The door sills had an aluminum insert, not the door panels.

    I have everything done in Carbon Fiber except the actual transmission tunel...
    but all the panels, sills, surrounds and steering wheel are carbon fiber...

    it really brings the itnerior up to date...

    I was not a fan of aftermarket carbon fiber kits for the F355 but as I plan to restore my interior on my 1995 F355 I'm starting to consider adding some carbon fiber as well as covering my dash in alcantara. I was looking to get a set of carbon fiber seats in Europe but they are simply way too pricey. I might go with something like a OMP-style seat with a carbon fiber shell. I actually saw a picture of a door card made out of carbon fiber... very nice looking but very pricey.

    Your interior is really nice looking! Especially with the black/tan combo along with the carbon fiber.

    GruppeM used to have that part. You might try them.

    Then you might like the door card on this page:

    http://www.revozport.com/355.htm

    Much less expensive than Gruppe M, but probably no longer available since the page is orphaned and none of these items appear on the product price list.

    I believe there was also a similar factory option door card that maintained the carpet over the door speaker.

    Hi, Here are some pictures of my '99 355F1 with Factory carbon fiber interior. I believe it has everything on your list above except for the dedication plate and the gear knob (for obvious reasons ;-) Oh, I don't think carbon fiber shift paddles were available as a factory option (I could be wrong), my paddles are from Gruppe M.

    Cheers,

    Alex

    I've seen that interior on Japanese websites. Did you get that from Japan?

    Where can I get an aftermarket carbon fibre centre console with that storage area at the front. I really need a storage area like that.

    Thanks.

    No, all carbon fiber parts except the paddles are OEM.

    Not sure if that's available as an extra piece. It came as part of the center console. I'd have to look closer but I think it is one piece with the center console.
