  • Interior Carbon Fiber Wrap January 17, 2021
    Has anyone tried a “carbon fiber look” wrap on the shift console and stereo/climate control bezel? The metal parts. I’m thinking about it and wondering if anyone has experience trying it. Reason I am asking is that I am looking at after-market stereo options. I see that std 2 DIN units take an install kit. […]
