Re: Dash Kit Opinion.

If you want CF get the REAL cf trim kit made by honda. I think you can still get them through Handa-accessories. Check out my MR page by clicking on my sig, I have the kit. It makes a huge difference on the interior. But yea I'd stay away from ebay cf stickers lol.

I will say "Yes it is a POS KIT"
2 reasons give it away.

First being how thin and flexible it is. The real more expensive kits, will not be prone to wrinkles and bubbles like I heard mentioned in the video. I used to cut these same patterns out of Avery 3M Vinyl in the sign shop I used to work in, and it is not different than the Rvinyl they are using. All it is, is a pattern of little gray squares printed on the black vinyl to give it a CF LOOK. I actually used it to wrap my friends mailbox with to give it the JDM look that we all want to have.

Second, the price. If you are gonna pay a little price for what is claimed to be a top notch product, then you are gonna get a little price worth of use from it.

So which would you prefer....



Or the cheap looking sticker...


You can see the difference in quality. A picture says a thousand words, and I think these are all speaking loudly.

Spend the extra cash, and get a quality product. I have the more expensive kit in my S2K, and it has been in there almost 10 years, no fades or cracks in it, and it is a breeze to keep clean.

Hope that helped !!!

Re: Dash Kit Opinion.

dont buy the stick on stuff. that is garbage. def go for the honda OEM carbon trim kit. i have it in my lude. its not real cf but still looks nice. if you keep your eyes open on ebay you can occasionally find a real cf radio bezel and gauge cluster surround. but dont buy the cluster trim on there. i bought it and the hole for the reset is on the wrong side and you cant just flip it over. trust me keep it clean and go with honda OEM trim. i have some pics of my interior on my members ride page. look below my sig for the link marked "livia"
