Painted or OEM Dash and Door Trim

I am debating on painting my dash and door panels IBM to match my exterior, but I can't decided if I like painted dash and door panels better or OEM ones. What are ya'lls opinions on what is better, Painted or OEM?

I have an IBM with white stripes so I used white to paint my inside panels. I took off the factory cloth and then took my parts in to be painted. Just an FYI the cloth is stapled to the dash trim. You have to take ever staple out and I took my parts to a pro to make sure the dash trim was sand down. If not you will see the staple nipples. I made this mistake with the first guy I went to... The second shop was way better and has done all my work since.

I am very happy with it for sure. Here are some photos

Do you have ABL? If no, go for painted.
