Suede wrapped dash you'll have to do yourself. I'd like to do something interesting like that but that's a lot of work to remove the dash.

With the black carpet, I know this sounds silly, but a cheap route would be to spray it with that Dupli-Color Fabric Paint. Stuff works great and you really can't tell it was any other color when done. Especially if you're going black.

For the dash, you might explore Ultrasuede and then some 3m spray glue. There's a thread somewhere of someone that redid their headliner in US ... a quick search of ultrasuede should find it.

please don't use fabric spray paint to do your carpets and seats. i did it on my passat. it's almost impossible to get an even colour/shade. in a couple weeks the paint will rub off on your clothes (if you do seats) and leave blotchy area in the high traffic zones on the carpet. the paint is meant for touch ups to existing dark interior. don't do the same mistake i did. i haven't tried this but get some "rid" brand fabric dye. rip your carpet out, mix die with water and go nuts. at least this way the carpet is now black, not light beige with black paint on it.
