While surfing the web I noticed that there is a vendor CARID (www.carid.com) that offers interior trim kits for the cube. They seem to have a wideselection of choices. Anyone used thes guys before??

I've ordered samples from this company, it seems that CARID sells their product, (I assume since they use the same product numbers and schematic drawings.) I'm just wondering how their product will mould to certain grooves of the cube, ie. a/c vents.

Thanks for the info. It looks like you are right on. The numbers are identical. Will do the same as far as the samples go. Thanks again

I'll keep my eye on this. I've been thinking about getting one of the Japanese Cherry Wood Trim kits.

:) I have the real Japanese Cherry Wood Trim in my Chrysler SRT-8 and everyone thinks it is Factory. You have to be meticulous when installing but they do a good job by not leaving gaps. The Cherry is real nice. Keep in mind this has a pliable polyurethane cover, which can scratch, with a wood veneer under it.

I checked that out...the actual manufacturer is WowTrim. I'd be interested to see pictures of this kit installed! Anybody doing one of these?

Also, there's another company making kits, B&I:

They actually have a picture of it:

Not sure I like the big "cube" thing over the glove box, but I like how they did the radio vs. the WowTrim kit. The smaller pieces would be more difficult to install though. Here are the two schematics, B&I vs WowTrim, side by side:

The B&I kit has a lot more detail around the radio, and instead of doing the tops of the doors, they've done the side panel where the bungees are plus around the door pull. The cube letters are chrome. It's also more expensive, $208 vs $121 at carID.

Now, if they only made these kits in shag...

Is may seem trivial but it is def something to consider. I like the b&i kit more if I was going to keep the factory radio unit, but I think that the wow kit is more suited to someone doing a double din touch screen screen, namely becuase the kit has a wide open hole where the radio is. Any one else echoing my statements? Just curious and just throwing that out there.
