I had the same problem with mine. I couldn't get the paint code to get a match. The only solutions I could find was to remove and respray the entire dash another colour (or at least the bits that are painted), or get a trim kit. I went for the latter as I could do it myself. The trim kit may not cover the bits you need though if it's on the passenger side.

Here's the link:

thats a good find, they do kits for a large range of cars, would be interested to see the quality of the stuff once fitted. I have some carbon effect vinyl in my interior already but few pieces are awkward shapes to do so, template pieces might be easier to apply

i pressume this covers 99 cars? Great find..........think the brushed alluminium would look great, not a massive fan of carbon fibre

plus they do lexus kit and altezza kit!

Mine is a 01, so I'd say the 99 is the same. Richie had the same in his. That's where I got the idea from.
The carbon fibre is lighter in real life than it appears in the pics on their site though.

any chance of attaching a pic? Seriously interested in it. I take it you were happy with it...........wat did it cost and how are the pieces stuck to the car? And finally, is the kit made from the actual material that's being bought?

Can't remember what it cost, the guy has the prices on the site. It's tricky to put on straight and you only really get one go to put it on right as it uses activator with the adhesive. Some of the bits I wish I could re-do, but it's on now and it's never coming off!

Here are some pics:

Hi Rob is it a flexible vinyl type of material or a harder, less flexible plastic type material?

Flexible, of sorts. You need to heat it with a heat gun to get it flexible enough to work with.
