Surprisingly I haven't had anyone hate on it yet. Of course I've got the orange wheels, too, so it actually all ties together. Just something to set it apart. Thanks!

Was installing my bi-directional remote starter and thought, 'What the hell might as well vinyl the console from that champagne (blegh) color'. I'm always biased towards black so decided to carbon black out the champagne. Personally its more subdued but I drive every day 4 hours in this baby so I wanted something easy on the eye. Got 8 sqft of dinoc from kijiji. Worked out quite well imo.





On an offshoot topic (don't want to start a new thread) if anybody has installed a remote starter please pm, just want to pick your brains on where you ran the hood switch through from the cabin to engine compartment, and if there were any predrilled holes for pass through.

No expierience with remote starter but since you have automatic there might be holes in clutch area. I drilled a hole to run the wires for my underglow

I've seen those rubber inserts on ebay and Amazon but if I remember correctly only blue and red were available.

Turbonium,that's the nicest and cleanest and almost OEM looking vinyl job i've seen in a long time. I'm not too much into interior "bling" but your's is making my consider doing mine.

Thanks RonMaiden.
Yeah it took me about 4 hours doing it as its a bit of a pain heating/stretching and contouring it to each bend. Used a roll of taped together cutip to push and form the wrap as I heated it with a hairdryer. Don't want to be doing that using bare hands. Prolonged exposure to that heat will be painful. But its worth it in the end. The original trim (champagne) scratches very easily. Since Sept 2011, got quite a few scratches on it just from everyday use. Scratches show very easily on it since it was quite reflective compared to this new wrap.
As for the rubber focus liners, I got those off EBay almost a year ago. This is the one I believe: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Brand-New-11-...-/330824735139

Problem that I found once it arrived is that its not quite for SEL and Titanium trims. 3 pieces don't go anywhere, and the cupholder mat is not for the cupholders that are parallel to the dashboard. One cupholder mat's radius is slightly smaller than the radius of the other. As such, it is not a good fit. Still use it though by putting it over the original cupholder mat.
