wood dash kits anyone?

I am planning on adding a wood dash kit. I know there is a fine line between looking luxurious/sophisticated and cheap/tacky so I was hoping to get some input before I choose brand and wood type. I have a 2015 grand touring hatchback with all black interior. The dash kits tend to have a ton of pieces I doubt I'll use, I'm thinking just replace all the piano black trim which I think could look quite stylish. I like the look of rosewood, blackwood, or possibly a birsdeye maple though that may be to light.

brands I'm looking at are remin and B&I

I haven't been able to find any pictures of kits specifically in Mazda 3's though besides one small one from the B&I website.

Anyone put one in their mazda? experience with either of these brands? recommendations for another brand?

I was thinking something similar the other day actually. The piano black looks nice, but scratches/fingerprints easily. If you found a kit that was OEM quality I'd like to see the results. I think Mazda got a lot of styling cues from BMW, and if BMW can pull it off tastefully I think it could look good in the 3's interior. I'd definitely say that the much darker or black woods would be the way to go.
