So I changed it some. Took off the glovebox trim, looked tacky, and removed the trim around the two center vents and upper steering wheel edges. Somewhat better. Still coming to terms with the color choice. Here is a shot of it. Also for the person who asked about thickness is a shot of the pieces.

Love the change that you made. Really seems to have "toned it down".

Is it fairly easy to adjust the pieces and line them up with the edges of whatever car parts they are being attached to ?

Thanks! It is easy. Actually easier than I thought it would be. Very little adjustment was needed. The only tricky parts were the center dash vents and upper steering wheel. (the parts I ended up taking off) You need to press them into the curvature without leaving gaps or they will straighten up. I think it is a quality kit with very good fitment. A bonus is the pieces are attached with 3m double sided tape so can be removed, (carefully) and replaced by putting new tape on it without destroying the pieces or dash.

Thank you for the pics. Between the images and your description, I now know that this is a kit I'm definitely interested in.

Not for me, but I think if you're going for the wood grain look--it works very well

I definitely dig the wood grain and I am very jealous of your interior, I hate my all black interior.

Got the samples and tried to take some pics at different angles. Whoever glued the samples to my card though, must have got some adhesive on the simulated aluminum one, cause I can't get the rest of the paper off of it.

The samples are: Real Carbon Fiber, Real Brushed Aluminum, Real Chrome, and Simulated Aluminum.
