I am just trying to draw some opinions on which one should I go? I like the real aluminum dash but i've heard it's kinda harder to install

umm real aluminum would scratch so easily. That's why the synthetic one is good. the real aluminum looks pretty phat but I don't know about the g20...I think the synthetic looks better on a g20...cuz there is so much of it.

like the is300 its all concentrated so looks phat but not with the g20

i wanna know the same thing... check out nick's car... i like this look... anyone know if this is synthetic or real? what does it look to you guys?? in my opinion.. it looks like real aluminum. Ive been looking for a aluminum kit too... maybe all of us who want one ( i know of a couple already) could decided on one, and maybe get a lil group discount. I think synthetic might match better with the guages on the 2002 sport... which is what i am trying to do. This guy nick got this on his car when he bought it from the dealership. I called them, and they said they only have wood grain kits... and the aluminum was prolly an aftermarket product installed by them. Well... email me if ur interested in getting a kit.. i wanna get one soon.

i've asked him and he said it was a $600 option at the dealer, he thinks it's real aluminum... yup it looks tight. i'havent seen a synthetic one in person, but saw a lot of pics in here. They look kinda of plastic and yellowish to me, i don't know - maybe the pics didn't show clearly enough

I'm not absolutely certain but looks like the same thing I have Brushed Aluminum Trim (synthetic). Synthetic eithe looks pure aluminum at times or doesn't at times. Really depends on the lighting.

But I'm prety sure you're save yourself a few headaches from scratches and what not with synthetic.

k, lemme get this straight... a "brushed aluminum trim" kit is a synthetic trim?? If it is.. then i think i know which one i want. Hey Chekmi21, where did you get your kit?? and do you have any pics of it?

as far as I know after talking to people and research on this forum, yes, synthetic aluminum = BA which costs about 150-180; whereas real aluminum costs around 230-260. In my opinion, the latter looks better but get scratched easily and it's harder to install coz it's metal (not easy to bend)
