i've got the "carbon-fiber" dash strip, and it matches *nothing* else on or in the car

anyone like that look and have a black strip they wanna trade? i'd go silver as well, to match other misc. silver color interior parts, but would much rather have the black.

it's 59 bucks man. list is only 69 or 72 or something like that, my receipt says so. bagman1 is a dealership parts seller. just pm him. and there's no way painting it will look like the stock one, that thing is soooooooo shiny.

Yeah, just paint one yourself. I pained mine a crazy purple/blue..... but you can apply this to black as well.  The key is to sand between coat layers to make sure that the final color coats are smoooooth.  The clear-coat can only do so much to remove subtle imperfections.  You can get 800 grit from wal-mart... it just takes a bit extra time to sand.
