our dash is all one huge piece, just get a wood kit, it will look so much better and classy. not to mention suade is'nt durrable and you CAN NOT clean it.

It's all just a matter of personal taste. If you have a vision, go wif it. (Unless your vision sucks...J/K couldn't help myself). Matthew is right, you won't be able to clean the suede. Check out the dash kits on ebay, they have everything from woodgrain to carbon fiber to brushed aluminum. Click on one of the wood grain kits and down toward the bottom of the listing it will give you all the colors available.

Are you talking about the upper dash? It could look very upscale if professionally done, or it could look like a $25 dash cover if not.

Whatever you do, make sure it's not shiny. Glare is a big problem with the dash design. That's why later models all had them in black.

Lord, do not do that. It's not one of those "gangster" Cadillacs. This reminds me of a car someone tried to trade me awhile back. It was a '97 Skylark with a tiger on the headliner. Yeah. It was as tacky as it sounds.

Still, nothing beats this Eldorado I looked at a few weeks ago. It had nonmatching wood trim, gigantic tips, loud exhaust, blacked out tail lights, "portholes" on the side and my favorite, a custom gauge and flip switch in the middle of the dash. The switch had a little red light and a cover like it was the switch for a missile launcher or something. There was just a slab of aluminum in the middle of the dash with this crap in it. The dealer claimed it was to turn on an extra fan under the hood or something. Needless to say, I didn't want to find out what it did...

Here's what the switch looked like:
