    I need everyone's honest opinion on this. I installed them today and I think it's too much red. With the pro, I have the red stitching but I think all of these inserts makes too much red. What do you guys think? I'm probably okay with the cup holders being red but I'm not sure about all these red lines.

    would probably look better if that chrome/silver was matte black.

    ^^^^^what @HecticEnergy said. Get that blacked out along with the grey piece by the shifter IMO and the black and red will pop and look awesome.

    Black out that cup holder surround and things will settle in.

    My .02... keep the cup holders and the console top... the other stuff seems too much... AND, like others said, it might be better with all the surrounds blacked out. Still pretty cool though..

    True that. Seems like kindof a pain to pull out though. I may try to tape it off and Plasti Dip it in place.

    Honestly it's not as bright as the pictures make it look. I used a flash which really made the red pop.

    I would black out all the chrome around the cup holders and shifter then take another look at it. The other thing that stands out is that the grain of the inserts in the cup holders is not running the same way as all the other pieces, they are slightly off from each other as well. That could just be me though.....

    I wish I had the stones to do that... so afraid I’d snap those trim pieces in half getting them off...

    If you've changed out your grill you can take the center terrible xilomn out very easy to paint.

    How long did you say it took? I'd wanna say 2 hours to pull, paint and replace (plus a little more for drying time maybe)...

    2-3 probably. Spray and let sit 15-20, then spray again, repeat 4 coats. I then let sit about 30-45 before putting on but that was because I was detailing the inside as I went.

    I like it. Do you have a link to where you got the inserts? Are they rubber or foam, lay in the insets or tape adhesive?

    I'm not feeling it, but it may be the chrome throwing it off like everyone else said
