Yes, it is matte. The wheels generally look like they're matte too unless I clean them with a product that adds some sheen. It was all done at the dealer. In retrospect I would've preferred a gloss wrap, then change the rear chrome garnish to the LX gloss black garnish and leave the emblem the standard chrome.

I ordered the Honda center console liner accessory. Being made of out of some sort of thermoplastic with a silicone additive it makes it easy to clean as well. The back lip tucks under the center console panel to hold it securely. Only downside is dust sticks to it very easily. They make it in orange and blue as well, if you're trying to bling the interior up, but neither color would match yellow/black that I have going on.

Anyway, overall it's a nice touch - nothing earth shattering. I think I paid $25 from Honda for it. Pics below.

I like how the vinyl wrap flows from the roof, onto the wing area. nicely done!


Did you do the wrap yourself? if yes .... was it hard, and, any tips for someone that is looking to wrap theirs?

received an early bday present from my lovely wife. H&D Trak+ DRM 25mm spacers. Part number is 5024561. These are hub centric and easy install. Build quality is solid. I was scared to get eBay ones since these hold the wheels on the car.

Before and after pics from side view mirror angle and from the lanewatch camera. I swear the lanewatch camera taunted me everyday. Put my turn signal on and can't even see my own wheel it's tucked so far in. So much better stance now.. very happy!

I'm gonna check to see if my local honda dealer has this. I have an orange Fit and would love the orange liner.

maybe it feels a little more planted? Might just be me being optimistic though. I did it purely for cosmetics. It definitely hasnít had any negative effect.

Found out my wife ordered me Eibach Pro Kit springs today for my bday

Not sure when they will be here, or how soon I will get them installed, but there will be an update once I get them on.
