    Angry CTS woodgrain trim swap for CTS-V trim???

    Hello everyone,

    I've been searching high and low for a "dash kit" to replace all wood grain trim inside my 08 for carbon fiber look-alike appliques (if that's what you call them)...and I'm having an effing nightmare finding one. All I want to do is remove all wood grain snap-in pieces on the dash and door panels and replace them with trim that looks like carbon fiber...is that too much to ask????? I can't even find snap-in pieces from a CTS-V to swap with. Any ideas?

    Thanks for the help, everyone!!! I expect I'm not the first person to look into this, hopefully someone can lend me a hand!!!

    I don't know about 08, but my 13 base model has carbon fiber trim instead of wood. THAT is the reason I ordered the base model. If they're the same, you can order it from GM.

    I'll have to check into that, hauler. It seems pretty identical from my observations...maybe I'll call Cadillac down the road and see if that will work. Basically everything I've found online is just a bunch of vinyl stickers, which I am not interested in

    If you are not interested in vinyl then check this out. He uses real carbon fiber wrap http://ocarbon.com/blog/2011/07/anot...-set-underway/. Btw, the V trim is not real carbon fiber, its actually fake printed carbon.

    Re: CTS woodgrain trim swap for CTS-V trim???

    I emailed the guy at oCarbon and it is $800 for the trim carbon fiber wrap....i'm honestly thinking of going the vinyl wrap method with my existing trim....all four doors, 3 dash pieces and one on each side of the shifter...I know is no where near the style or quality of ocarbon..but honestly I'm just really effing tired of my woodgrain
