Aluminum Trim

Eh, it *is* overkill, what I really want is the glove compartment metal flowing into the dash part only really (both sides of course) ala oem kit.

What's the best price someone has seen the OEM metal trim kit for sedans? I know handaacessories.com has it for $180 plus shipping.

It "looks" good, but seeing it up close and how thick the pieces are makes it look like a cheap gel-coated sticker.

I have, and they look ok, but up close it looks retarded. Buttons and knobs aren't flush anymore.....etc

I got one of those kits. They are cheap gell coated stickers. I was very disappointed when I got them and almost sent them back. However I couldn't leave well enough alone and tried a few pieces. After ultimately putting them all on I do think they look pretty good and have stayed stuck on well also. I got the kit for only $175.00 so I knew they weren't going to be perfect. The complete kit I got covers everything from the over head panels to the steering wheel. Since I had the "dealer" installed metal trim upgrade kit I was wondering how well they would match and it isn't bad, not great, but ok. I feel that it gives the interior a much dressier feeling especially around the nav/head unit. IMHO. I will post some pics soon...waiting on HID retros before I update all my pics.

I Got my CF trim back in 03 and looking at it yesterday I noticed that it was starting to fade, go with the aluminum trim over the CF...It looks bulky but its worth it because it adds some flavor to your interior

Yeah, seems most hate the majority of trim kits. this kit is supposed to be thicker and not the gel coated stickers like the cheaper kits for $100plus dollars. But either way it's a lot of money.

AZ-V6-Hybrid, sounds like you bought one of the $100 dollar ones like you said, are they flat pieces?

bustedryde, do you have this exact one for $300plus or one of the standard ebay trim kits?

Yes, but I have to admit they do conform nicely.

I don't have either, my trim on the console is real metal, no cheapo gel coat (had it machined by a shop). The climate control bezel and door consoles were painted and clear coated. I've seen those kits up close, from $100 to $300, and they're all the same gel sticker.

it is overload; I think I might just want to get the OEM kit only because I like have it along the dash, such as the glove compartment.

busted, how much did it cost you to get it done?

BIG overload, and it does look cheap, even at a distance. at $350, you better be getting factory replacements for those parts. Not some shiny thick stickers.
