some cars look bloody hot/sporty with the carbon kits; dunno what an ef/el would look like but.
Id have to see it person b4 passing judgement.
One thing id think it i wouldnt like tghe look of the sticker unless it looks orig/non sticker.

The edges would have to go all way down into the grooves in the dash so they couldn't be seen. My thinking is that it would look alright if the fit was spot on.

I dont know how it could be considered rice but I dont think stickers are a good idea. Ive seen some pretty bodgy looking stick ons in wood grain and carbon fibre that tend to peel at the edges. I just had my dash parts covered in carbon fibre film by Modicoat in Queensland. Alot more expensive than those stickers but will last a lifetime.

Quote:
These dash kits are not replacement parts for existing dash components. They are made from a self adhesive UV protective synthetic resin material that is fitted over the top of the existing dash. The dash surface should be thoroughly cleaned before installation and free from any Armour All or other additives.


Stick-on = Dodgy
