I thought about bidding on the ebay auction as my dash was cracking like most. My panels are the standard veneer and I am not real sure what to do. redo the veneer or go CF. But to answer your question, no I did not bid on the eBay CF panels. They were made for instrument faces to be mounted in wing panels like your 88. My SE has square like opening compared to the nacel like opening. I would have had to wet saw the openings and figured it would be too much work to change the panel. So I thought one of the 88 guys here would benefit more out them than me.Did you win the eBay auction for the CF dash panels?
My old SE years ago had a darker dash. I have seen S4s with a darker dash pieces too, So did a little research and it appears both of us have yellowing and fading to make our dash look lighter. Perhaps like this Jag panelA previous owner of my car was kind enough to put a wood Raid wheel in my car. The wheel is a good match to the dash, just a tiny bit darker.
