Let me answer some questions:
This is the one I got off of ebay. Though you can find the same online for around 120-150 (I think I got lucky).

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=120110397673

Install took about an hour and a half--It is not perfect, alignment is tough--this stuff is sticky. When the Texas sun loosens it up I will straighten it out a bit. Pretty happy overall with fit.

I considered carbon fiber--I like the look of the steeda kit (see their website). But I am cheap and found this one for a good price and went for it.

it may not be perfect but i think you did a very good job. it looks very nice and eyecatching. there are lots of pieces in that kit that no one else has that i really like - the vent covers, the door switch pieces & the light switch. however, even after seeing yours i can't really decide if i like that long dash piece or not. yours looks better than the pics they always advertise the kit with but i'm still not sold on it. i think i may eventually get one of these kits to add some of the other pieces and lay it down to try it out. how does that piece look and feel to you when you sit in the driver's seat?

and you definitly got a pretty good price on it!!

A bit too much silver, but not that bad. :)

Actually the long dash piece turned out great I think--it is what I have received the most complements on. Here you can see the before and after as well as another center shot.

Looks good man, I ended up getting the CF dash kit from steeda and a couple other places. The center peices and door handles are the actual CF dash layover instead of the sticky Trim. heres a few pics. Excuse the mess, the pics are when i first installed the kit..
I like that peice above the glove box.. looks hot! i didnt get that w steeda :)

I love the look of brushed aluminum. Not sure how it'd look in a 05 interior though. I'm curious.
