    RX4Pain sent me the pictures. The quality isn't bad. Just changed the compression & rotated a couple of them around.

    Here's (4/6) -- not too impressed with the vent pieces. Wish they covered the whole thing.

    Thanks BigRich for posting those. The kit is nice - as far as the carbon fiber and fit go. Remember, it was $195 shipped, and yes I too wish that some of the pieces were bigger and covered more, but I guess for the price it's really good. The polyurethane is quality and glossy - maybe too glossy. It doesn't restrict the view or quality of the fiber. Too, the 3M adhesive on the back is a little padded, so it is raised slightly. But the fit is good so only when it's laying flat, like directly above the glove box (that little thin strip) and around the vents is it noticeable. For the price and quality, especially based on others out there, I would say this is a great buy if you're looking for this sort of accessory.

    Does anyone else think that they CF lining is tacky?

    It looks too shiny. Kinda like when people put tin foil around their door edges

    no, i don't think it looks tacky.

    i think the plastic attempt to make metal looks tacky. the CF looks good.

    have you read any of the posts on this thread? if you did, i think you are not reading very well, becasue obviously the people here like it. we have a 3 page thread talking about it.

    if you didn't, then you are silly becasue you posted blind, and didn't even know what was going on. that's like the kid that hears three words of a conversation and jumps in with a comment, only to find the conversation was about something else.

    the truth of it is, you posted to start trouble. don't be a killjoy.

    Greg, DR... ditto!

    Anyway, just got finished installing mine. I whipped up a quick case of the flu that seemed to last EXACTLY how long it took me to install the dash kit. Just had to leave work today around 2:00pm.

    Total install time was an hour and a half. That "primer" stuff you put on your dash before did the trick; those pieces are NOT coming off. All I needed was a couple Q-tips and a heatgun of my own. Each piece fit just fine. The only pieces I did not install was the piece on the Glove-Box and the piece in the change tray (beneith the ash tray). Could always put those on later if I wanted to. Also finished up my Apex TT install. Used that "primer" stuff for that too. worked like a charm.

    I'll post a pic tomorrow. No real difference between mine and RX's but I did use the clock piece which he skipped because of his gauges. Also looks real nice against the white-faced gauges I have.

    Cool BigRich...and for the record, tacky to me is body kits that are bolted on right out of the box in primer, pastel yellow. Or better yet, left the color of the car your friend is parting out. That is tacky. Not saying that anyone here would mar a WRX to this extent. So assuming that this would never be the case, I can see how personal touches such as this dash kit could seem - less preferred? Besides, I'm relishing in my uppipe, downpipe and unichip my car just got bolted on today...I'll post that in another area. I think this thread is officially fin!
