Dash kits anyone have one?

I am thinking of buying a dash kit from dashkitspecialties. I really only want the pieces that go over the interior door handles, transmission console (arround shifter and ashtray and the piece across the passenger side dash.

My concern is it says they recommend painting black where the OEM dash may be showing. Mine is already black, but is this going to look like crap? Anyone go this road before?

Unless you go with a full kit, all carbon fiber. then your car will be 10X faster!

Those are STICKERS! I put stickers on my bike when i was 10. but thats about the last point when putting stickers on your car was acceptable.

Just my sarcastic .02

AHHHH....yeah I am just a little bummed the trim is painted factory a very very very dark blue essentially black, so there isn't any contrast where it should be.

I need to figure out something, other 128/135 come with different trims.

Thanks for the input, I think you all saved me from a mistake.
