Default interior dash kit (wood trim, ect..)

Do you think its a good idea to get a wood trim kit for the interior?

my interior is all beige like this GP pic:
http://www.pfyc.com/supportfiles/burldash1.jpg

but I need to know how much these run for and where you guys order them. If anyone has pics of their own car and have done this I'd like to see them.

another thing is I'm missing the drivers side tweeter cover and center console cupholder, is there a site I can order these from also?

thanks
xk

only thing with tint is that I think they are illegal for front windows in michigan. I had a friend ticketed for having front tint (not the windshield).. I'll get the details on that..

Anyone from MI did tint on their bonnie? need suggestions

Tinted front window in MI can be done with a prescription from optometrist or something. Friend'* little sister had it done w/script, but still got pulled over for it quite a bit.

Oh, and I think it'* top 4" can be tinted no prob. Last I knew, that'* how it was. I ripped that off my Bonne because it was mismatched and I thought it looked silly. Still got all the back tinted, though

Tint on the front window in any state is illegal. Check out your state here:

Find a tint professional in your area and have the tint put on correctly. It does not cost that much.

as long as you dont' go too dark I don't think the police will really care too much. I have 35% and it'* dark enough to notice, but not dark enough that the cops can't see into my car. It'* a happy medium.
