This is definitly an item that I feel looks better than the original.
The original one I had bubbled from years of heat. It also peeled away fromt he edges.
I could tell that this was higher quality and will last much better than the old product.
Again, this was replaced when I put the carpet in. It made it easy to replace the shift box, the shifter bushing, and was a simple easy fix. In just a few easy steps my old console now looks like new!
