^ yes, black alcantara dash is awesome. I've always wanted to do it. You can buy the alcantara material easy enough, you just need to get someone to wrap and stitch it for you. Not sure on the black inserts, could be painted, but don't bother buying anything from the US cos all their trims are for LHD cars and won't fit on our RHD cars.

I think the whole dash thing looks amazing. I love the centre console, I might actually did that. ye I think the inserts look mad black must be paint. Yea all that **** never fits good anyway.

I'll do the centre console first just to make sure I like it, but I think it will look good
