I don't think Honda has the CF look trim kit.. it only comes in 2 woods and a brushed aluminum look.

I think he's looking for the ones that go around the vents and across the front of the dash (where the passenger's knees would go). He made it clear that he has the 6speed and just wants to complete the trim that's already there.

I think too much CF looks tacky. I think the amount of CF in the 6-spds is perfect, and any more is just going to take your eyes away from everything else inside the car.

I don't even like the ones that come on the 6-speed. It looks really fake. I am actually thinking of getting a real CF trim kit. $225 shipped for a full kit.

PM me if you want info on this.

havent seen anything so far that matches OEM. I think OEM would be hard to match since the pieces are actually painted that way. All the aftermaret ones I seen are wood, aluminum, or real CF.

Someone on here put on the brushed aluminum kit along with the factory 6 speed CF trim. It looked pretty good.

Really? that doesn't sounds like a bad idea or maybe I could get the metal look and sand it down and paint it to match my exterior. That might be kinda tight.
Does anyone have pics of the inside of their accord painted to match outside?

Im thinking of removing all the Carbon Fiber trim and just going with the Brushed Aluminum Look. Im not a fan of Carbon Fiber. Painting the trim to match the exterior isnt my thing either. Let us know what you do and please post pictures when your done.
