I currently have a trim kit

IMHO if I was more confident at the time I would have vinyl wrapped it

What color do you guys think I should get
CF, red CF, or solid red

Not hard the hardest was the air bag . And if you watch the video on you tube about installing the push button start it will show how to do that and it's simple.
Thanks for the compliment
