Woodgrain isn't too bad but too much is overkill and looks fake. I've considered doing it to mine but I don't know yet.. kind of like the stock look better

I still haven't decided what I'm going to do, but definitly something, I want to see the inside of a GXP dash personal, Might try to get those pieces or just get a dash kit to match layout. The gemico I found has a ton of pieces and does all the middle console. Probably end up getting that one in either brushed crome of somesorts hoping it will be close to my silver paint outside or might go crabon fiber but don't really want to for some reason.

Wood dashs look great on light tan intereiors, don't think I want to try it on my dark graphite interior.

As for the Riv- I've seen that big dash kit in car car and thought it looked GREAT!!!!, Nice burlwood with litte bit of swirl, very nice. I've seen the layoutsx fora it, that'* a very big kit you hvae to order and kinda pricey compared to smaller kit cars. But My opinion, go for it, you'll wonder why you waited so long.

That isn't my car but its a '93-'99 done up in Wood. I think it looks pretty slick.

I just ordered a kit from Joshua Tree Woodtrim (www.woodtrim.com). I used them 4 years ago for a kit and their stuff is very good quality. They make Carbon Fiber trim too, as well as aluminum.
