It's done, I handed over the keys to my CT yesterday. This car was the most fuel efficient, comfortable and low maintenance car I've ever owned. Downgrading to my wife's Prius C while she gets the new Leaf (mileage didn't work out for me), and I keep an eye out for my next car.
I prefer local...
The F Sport CTs are all black and silver inside. I wanted a touch of something more natural and light in color, so I decided to switch the dash panel to the bamboo option. Here are my notes and pics on this.

I have heard of people paying about $150 online for the little bugger...the dealer wants $250! Where can I get the best deal on one? I searched Ebay and Amazon with no results......I feel guilty enough paying $150, but $250???? No way!

"Hey Gurl" requested some photos showing the Bamboo dash trim with the Ecru interior on another thread after I had commented that I thought the two went well together in my CT, even at the discounted cost of $154 for the $199 piece.

Should arrive later this afternoon on the big brown truck.
I'll post some pics after I complete the 30 second install.
Definitely "unplug" plug and play on this mod.
Ordered online on Wednesday, UPS tracking says will be delivered today.
