depends on your interior scheme.. If you have a silver car with dark colored rims,(alot of Carbon Fiber) then Id just get a Carbon Fiber dash kit (THE REAL STUFF)

ya I agree, get it sprayed with a real gun. Don't try to rattle can that shit, it looks REALLY BAD! rofl But I would say it would look real clean and suttle if you did it the same paint as the outside of your car. real glossy, it would be just enough to look clean and sick. carbon fiber would be good too but get the real stuff. no fake discount vynal crap. just my opinion! thumbsup

I disagree, I did my console using spray cans and if you follow the guide on this site it can come out really nice. Plus you only spend $20-30. Here are a few pics.

I would say black also. And I would suggest trying it out yourself. I have seen some really great DIY center console paintjobs. If you mess up, then bring to a real body shop, at least you tried.
