have you fitted a sports steering wheel matey? are you sure your allowed to fit a wheel without an airbag? won't that invalidate the MOT or insurance?

wouldn't mind my dash trimed in leather but I thinks its a bloody hard job to get the whole dash out! Be careful as even with the best trimmers the glues they use to stick it to the dash sometimes come unstuck cause of the heat through the screen onto it and so it expands and will ripple and come unstuck, and it will look well crap... think long and hard about having this done... I wouldn't spend £300 on the dash... do it yourself but in either leather or leatherette much cheaper!!!

no paint will look crap, you want to trim it out, but all you need is a sewing machine and some leatherette fabric, I'm having a go at doing bits of the console in this first to see what its like, I'll post some pics when all done!
