Turns out that the regular trim black is a better match to the rubber. Not 100%, but it will pass the five foot test decently.



Here's the euro jet black and the regular trim black against brand new factory rubber:



Too bad the rubber on the rear door D pillar trim is cracked and nasty... new replacements run about $200/side.

Have I mentioned to never buy a car from a pet owner?





Under the rear seat was even worse, especially where the foam fused with the soundproofing and fur.

Meanwhile my care package from the dealer showed up:



Complete with stickers admonishing me to only install these on cars with the sport package.

What did you get in the box? Nothin' like a fresh batch of car parts.

ZHP front control arms. Pretty much the only remaining mechanical things left are the CDV and motor mounts.
