Interior Wood Trim

Anyone have experience with aftermarket [URL="http://www.carid.com/2013-bmw-x1-wood-grain-dash-kits/remin-dash-kit-full-kit-21434906.html" trim[/URL]?

They have some really good looking stuff that BMW does not have (See "Materials" at bottom of web page)

A friend put one of these kits in his Mercedes a couple of years ago. The real wood is impressive; it looks beautiful. He had some trouble with a couple of pieces sticking properly but once he got that sorted out he had no problems, and it's lasted well. I think the only issue is it's tedious to do an entire car in one sitting. A lot of concentration needed to get the alignment right for all the pieces, and losing your concentration for even a second could be a disaster.
