Default Interior trim swap from 05+ to an 03?

You know how around the radio area, in the new Ion's, it's a brushed aluminum? can we swap that into our 03's? how can i get this and for how much?
also, i think around the shifter is alum too, right?

Wooddash.com has a trim kit that has an option for brushed aluminum. i ordered one the other day for about $160 for 27 piece set. they said it would take about 8-10 days to make and ship.

I bought the Bezel that goes around the radio and gear selector at the Saturn dealership where I bought my car, I am sure I paid $60.00-70.00 for both (they are for the special edition ION), or you can go to this web sight and purchase them:
www.SaturnParts.net
The shift knob I cost $50.00 from:
www.sps.com
Seat covers $40.00, antenna $10.00 from autozone.
Good luck, hope this helps.

There is one Hex screw in the front of the old shift knob, just unscrew it. The new one will come 6 Hex screws, 3 with flat ends and 3 with pointed ends, I used the pointed ones. 1 chrome ring which will have to go on the shiftlever rod first threads up. 1 leather/aluminum knob.
Put the 3 screws in the knob but not all the way thru, put the knob on the lever and tighten the screws up evenly, if you don't the chrome ring will never tighten up on the knob (be careful not to strip threads donot force), make sure that the button on top is working properly, you may have to either have raise or lower the knob so that it engages properly (may take several times but it will work). This may sound scary but its not. Just don't use force and make sure you foot is on the break pedal.
Good luck, and if you are stuck send me an e-mail.

loulax07,

I really like the Eclipse DVD navigation head unit installed in your Accord, have you tried putting such a unit into your ION's dash? Would it fit?
