IMO, they're all crap. Regardless of how they advertise it, the pieces are puffy gel-covered stickers (I've seen the "expensive" kits and the "cheapo" kits up close, and the build quality is the same to me). I just got a metal shop to do my bidding for my console.

you should definately get molded if you get a kit. It looks a lot better IMO. Molded goes around the curves and contours and flat really just looks stuck on. I would also look into hydro graphics. Its like what the car companies do, it coats the stock pieces in whatever pattern you want. here's one site

Just paint your dash, or you'll regret it.

Painted anything that was OEM graphite(climate control bezel and window control panels), the center console (auto-shifter and ebrake) was cut at a machine shop, REAL metal.

does honda carry oem aluminum or any kind of interior trim kits for the 98-02 or is the stock black/gray that comes with our car the only option for oem?
