I put some brushed aluminum trim pieces on my S2000 to brighten up an interior inspired by a coal bin. I wouldn't think of putting aluminum trim on a Gen 2 Legend. The wood on an LS is beautiful. If I had an L, I'd consider finding some real wood trim from an LS.

FYI, I'm not too sure what everyones idea of Brushed Aluminum is BUT.... the Brushed aluminum kits that you get off ebay are PEEL AND STICK. Furthermore - they may be brushed aluminum, however - the actual aluminum is thin as thin as foil and is sandwhiched between 3M tape and a thick clear plastic poly coating.

I went to a car show in NJ and asked this guy who had a G2 Coupe how much he paid for a REAL brushed aluminum trim kit - which was identical to OE trim (ergo thick, solid, preformed aluminum) and he said $750.00.

Just look at the pictures for the brushed aluminum or carbon fiber kits on ebay for $120.00 - they are flat.

Good luck if you end up buying a kit. FYI, I have a friend who has one brand new brushed aluminum dash kit (same as on ebay) for a G2 Manual Coupe for $85.00 shipped.

LMAO, he got the kit off ebay for like a buck seventeen or somthing. He has tried to contact the seller to return the package however, the seller has refused to return his emails. Negative ebay feedback has not been left on either the seller or my friends account. Kind of like a pickle cause the moment he does post a neg on the seller, the seller will neg on Davids account.

Anyways, It looks good - just not was my friend expected. He thought he was going to get the real - preformed - through and through aluminum dash trim for a buck twenty and thats not the case.

Anyways, the 85.00 is an attempt to recoop.

IF IT SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE - THEN IT IS.
