There is a very distinct lack of competition in the gauge mount arena for the 00-05 Monte's. It fits decently but you wouldn't bring it to a car show, mine pulls away from the factory trim by about 3/8" so if you look you can see the wires inside. It is on the door side so you get a good look every time you open the door.
The graphite color does not match the black interior of the Monte. If you look at the pic displayed, that isn't a lighting issue. It is very close, but can be annoying if you are looking for a clean and matching gauge mount. I wish they could have darkened the piece up a bit.
That all being said, the gauges mounted in very nicely, I had only a small amount where the gauge didn't fit all the way in but you can't easily see it. The gauges are right there in your face for easy reading but it really magnifies the left hand blind spot so it will take you a bit to get used to in a daily driver. Finally it is the only mount for the Monte and for the most part it does do a good job. Very easy to install.

Great quality and fits like a glove.
