Alcantara is more durable than a flocked surface, but its also a matter of the bucks you want to spend. I had the complete dash in alcantara trim in my former car and I loved it.

Oh wow, nice. Like I say it's more to stop the light reflecting. If I use suede or alcantara I'll do it my self just on the top of the dash. But I've just found out my local evo specialist do dash flocking for £120. I'll just have a look at the two and try and make a decision thanks guys

I had the dash flocked in my old 106 GTI. It did look really good but was a nightmare to keep clean and does wear over time.
Alcantara looks really nice and much more durable.

I really like that Tony looks smart and something different re the evo scene.

I have a flocked dash in mine - going to see if I can give it a clean / de-fluff when I can.

My (professionally) flocked dash (don't have very good pics)
