Essentially you can't get what Jaguar originally used; a heat formed textured plastic.

Vinyl material is what you are left with. It's thicker so you run into problems with clearance.

I had mine done in leather and can attest to the clearance statement.

Hi Steve, Whilst waiting on a reply via the forum I have sent a message to BAS to ask about availability after reading this on their site listed under " optional trim kit pieces "
