Hydrodip or real carbon fiber overlays for interior pieces?

Having trouble deciding what to do with some interior pieces either hydrodip the carbon fiber look or get real carbon fiber overlays I found on eBay. I've never seen hydrodipped stuff in person so that's why I am asking, does it look cheap, ricer etc? Here's the carbon fiber overlays I'm talking about.

I personally think the ones in the Ebay link look awful. And at a 200$ US price tag, i'm sure you can spend the money somewhere else. They tend to be cheap and the corners will start peeling away after a few months.

Hydro dip looks much better. Even canned spray paint made leaps during the last few years if applied properly.

Real carbon or GTFO. Laminate > overlay > leave the stock pieces alone > hydroricegarbage.

I had my extra set of interior trim pieces sent to Liquid Concepts to match the carbon fiber steering wheel.
