You can look for a cheaper one from a dismantled car (like after an accident), I think that will be the cheaper option. Also it means that you can take only the part that you need, not the whole kit (includes the door inserts and steering wheel insert).
Another (cheap) option is to go for a high quality sticker like 3M carbon fiber like, maybe they have other textures as well. You will need to do the whole "kit" but I think that it will be much cheaper and should look good. I saw a CF work here in one of the threads, and it looks so good, I'm thinking to do it in my car too, altought my part looks good (but I have the flat silver plastic dash trip)
