My Ride: E46 M3 Turbo
I think it looks good but only if the car came with it. If looking at buying I would go carbon fibre

I have the black cube in my 330, it looks great but the black does scratch/ wear and expose the aluminium beneath. The chemicals to re blacken are pretty severe, so any repairs mean you have to remove the trim entirely. My wife wanted the black cube in her 325, I have sold her on carbon fibre as I don't believe the black cube will hold up as well with her wearing rings on her fingers, etc. if you are unsure which way to go, I would suggest you vinyl wrap the dash pieces only to see how you feel about the change without spending a heap on either.

I have it and I think it looks pretty good, carbon fibre would look even better though in my opinion.

I've got the silver cube. Looks nice when it is in good condition, however because it's aluminium top skin, once it scratches, you can't fix it.

There you go. Dash and passenger, driver and dash, and a close up of the cube trim. Its a composite of a ABS backing and a aluminium trim.
