Go wood!!!
Hey martin you could always upgrade. Get a plain front dash from the bone yard, take the add on trim pieces off, and start from scratch. I think it would look good!! Thanks for the compliments, the wood is called "African Rose"...heh

Yea! Go check 'em out, you can see the layout for your model too.

I got my kit for ~$200 with free shipping. I've bought two other kits from these guys, they have good stuff at great prices.

Thanks all for the compliments!! You guys can do this too....

The kit was about ~$200 with shipping. You can get them from a variety of sources. I've had great luck with Joshua Tree Wood Trim (www.woodtrim.com). You can choose the type of wood you want (I went with something called "African Rose") and I finally installed it today.

You will want to tell whatever company you order with....

1) Whether or not you have Heads Up Display

2) Whether or not you have Premium Audio

Both of these need cutouts in the wood if you have them.

Application is fairly simple. Apply rubbing alcohol to all pieces that are going to have the trim applied. After the alcohol, apply 3M Primer (included with kit) to all surfaces. Then, test fit each piece. Then, take off the backing, and very CAREFULLY apply the piece. Once its on there, theres no turning back!! (Well you can, but you might break the piece in the process and leave a mess behind).

I also installed a mirror compass, but I'll post that on another day

Its a nice little mod to enhance the inside. Any questions just ask...
