IPT's are nice, but you have a lot of added pieces that i don't think look that great.
Toyota's is nice IMO.

also, the Toyta covers the whole center console...

see how the ashtray part is a rectangle, toyota's is an entire piece that same shape...
and at the top of the compartment, there is no piece for that...
Toyota's is one big piece that covers up there.
Toyota's is just cleaner looking IMO.

I don't like Toyota's Carbon Fiber dashkit for the express reason that it's not real carbon fiber. IMHO, real carbon fiber looks 10x better than immitation. For real carbon fiber, I'd say IPT is your best bet. My .02 cents.

2000 - 2004 should all be the same, but beware of ebay.

www.acculaser.com same exact kit. That's the brand that Toyota sells. They make them for Toyota. $180. The kit that you are looking at on ebay is the acculaser kit and it's only $180 directly from acculaser. Just email them and they'll send you a picture of the kit if you want to make sure that it's what you want. Don't let them screw you on ebay!! angry
