Trust this of full dash kit?

Wonder if anyone has ever ordered from this site. All of this for just $196? Seems like such an amazing price I'm having a hard time believing all of this actually comes with the order and will be of decent quality. Anyone got any experience with them?

This seems like a legitimate deal. Of course, it consists of only wood, aluminum, or carbon fiber pieces that stick onto your interior using adhesive. I wouldn't expect this to look like real carbon fiber dash components.

While surfing Team-Integra.net I listen to Pandora.com

I didn't even notice it was just stick on I was wondering why it was so cheap when the console alone is the same price when I looked around. Thanks for pointing that out.

All of these kits will be "stick on". There is not "real" carbon fiber vents for our vehicles. The only thing that you can do to make it more realistic would be to wrap it in a carbon fiber 3M wrap.

That's an OEM Type R climate control cluster. It's not real carbon fiber, as it was printed on the plastic. Almost like screen printing.

You're right but better than the old cracked one I have now. Lol it's pretty much the last interior piece I need.

Are you going to be changing the other bulbs out to match this cluster since it'll be a different color and won't match the rest of the vehicle's illumination?

I got a kit with that same "Diagram" from CarID.com for about the same price (Im sure a few different companies have their name on it but all get it from the same manufacturer) and I love it! everyone on here is correct its "3M" adhesive but I had the option to select "real brushed aluminum" (for an extra charge). Sure enough though the kit came with real aluminum pieces and it looks great (pics are in my album) I made a few judgement calls and left some pieces off for fear of looking "tacky" and a few of the "rounder" parts of the car ie: door handle covers, it tends to "fight with" but everything was cut as perfectly as you could expect. I already had the interior broke down but it only took me an afternoon to install it. Just make sure everything is super clean and you use the "accelerator" (don't actually know if this helped as I have nothing to compare it to). For the money though; id say the dash kit and my window tint are the two things that give you the most "damage per dollar" when it comes to stylistic imporvements.
