W201 wood dash kit

I have a 1992 180e and was looking at tarting up the rather staid stock interior. Has anyone installed one of those aftermarket Wood Panel kits in their 190e/180e? Im interested to see how they look and whether they're tacky lookin or not.

My car has the "Zebrano" wood trim around the gear shift but now anywhere else.

(http://www.carshine.com.au/Mercedes%20W201%20Accessories.htm is where im getting them from )

Photos if youve got em

I've got a 90 190E 2.6 and I bought a wood kit from kickindash.com. It looks good and was easy to install. It is zebrano and looks like the factory stuff. Sorry, no pictures yet, but I can vouch for the quality of kickindash.

wow that looks better than i expected. I think i'll definately order that! My interior is a little different tho, the center console is a bit different. I think the later model W201's were a bit different.

It looks different because only American models had the push-button climate control, Us(Australia) & Europe had the dial kind, because of our different climate controle console the stereo is at the very bottom of the dash(just above the ashtray) whereas in the American model the stereo was further up, it had a blanking panel below it.
