Serious Auto Molded Wood Dash & Center Console

[10/26/2000] Reviewed by Keye M. Chang -

Applicable to '90 - '97 1.6 liter 1.8 liter

Two plastic pieces with Burlwood look to directly fit over the center console and radio surround. Pieces are afixed using double sided tape.

The Serious Auto product is exactly what they advertise. It's a plastic piece that stick right over the top. The finished look is nice and looks especially nice with the aluminum vent rings. The double sided tape that Serious Auto supplies is useless since they're placed in areas that don't really come into contace with the dash so fit isn't perfect. Some trimming and wrasslin' is involved. One note...If you ever decide that you might want to remove your center console to, say, install a short shift kit, you're going to have to cut some holes in the plastic since they cover up the screws in the console when installed.

In the end I got what I wanted a nice wood trimed interior that didn't look on a stick on faceplate but looked more clean. I still wished I could've had the R-speed treatment but they're delay with the manufacturer was too long. Almost 4 months. This is the next best thing. I'm happy with it.

Under 5 minutes to remove
