Has anyone installed interior trim components from these folks (http://www.carid.com/2009-cadillac-cts-wood-grain-dash-kits/)?

They claim they have real wood and real CF pieces. The prices seem very resaonable...almost too reasonable.

those kits look cheap. on some cars they look good. But when there are too many really thin sections, it just looks plastic-y. Avoid. You won't be happy with it.

I didn't realize that these are the stick-on varity. Thanks JimmyH, I think I will avoid...

I went through my "dash kit" stage. The 3D molded ones in my Maxima looked awesome. The above kit in my Honda Pilot looked very classy. I tried it in my CTS-V and it was garbage. So learn from my mistake :D

Oh, and the reasonable prices are the fake wood. The real wood veneer kits are almost $400. Not that they are any better than the fake wood.

yeah.. If my 'real' they mean matrix real, then I suppose it is. Otherwise the $$$ they're selling it for doesn't even cover material costs for 2x2 twill CF and the resin. a CF wrapped trim set from a vendor that has a thread going here is north of $1000.

I had some on my maxima that were real wood. I know because I pulled them off and sliced one piece apart. It was indeed real wood veneer.

...and they throw in a case of warm Pabst in the trunk....for free!

So....let me do the math here......one CTS-V = 2xMullet Mobiles and 2xcases of Pabst....hmmmmmm?!?

Big Jimbo.....the 'ole JimmyH may be on to something here......

I was looking at it, and the only money I lost on the CTS4 and Camaro LT was the sales tax I paid on them. Not too shabby.
