I had my heart set on the silver CF overlay kit from Carson Toyota for my IS300. I called Luis and I was so pleased that they were offering the kit for $135 then my heart sank when he told me that there are no more silver CF kits.

That's when I contacted CARiD. I sent them a link to the Carson site asking if they could provide something similar and I worked with Jon Frattini from CARiD. Let me tell you folks, he was able to contact the manufacturer and is getting me the four silver CF pieces for $95. Now that's outstanding! :approve:
I suggest you call him if you need any accessories and he will hook you up. 800.505.3274 Ext 833

This kit is only for the door switches right? I thought the front passenger door overlay didnt have a hole for the lock? Has that problem been fixed?

No, the problem has NOT been fixed nor will it ever because the company went out of business. That's why Carson was letting them go for $135 but all they had let was the dark CF. I wanted silver so I went to CARiD.

Received my silver CF overlay and it looks just like the set offered from Carson. I'm quite pleased.

I got the pieces installed yesterday and they look pretty good. Now I remember why I didn't go with Silver CF for my entire dash kit. It would have been too busy. Just doing the four doors adds a little contrast to the silver dash kit. I will get some pictures posted soon.

Speaker covers came stock with the car and the LEDs are strips that you can attach. I recommend oznium leds. They seem to be the brightest on the market.
