I have completed my woodgrain accent mods to the interior. It turned out great. My interior now stacks up against my buddies Navigator interior. Here is what I added:

--Steering Wheel with Red Burl Wood
--Red Burl and leather shift knob
--B&I REd Burl Dash and Trim Kit

With the trim kit, I applied and then removed the wood from the console. It was just too much. Plus, to me, that was the only area that was obvious was not OEM. It was obvious that it was an add-on. I never even bothered to put on the protion around the stereo controls. The brushed aluminum lactually looks good, specially with the wood trim around it. It is awesome. Check the pics.

Thinker, That looks really nice. I think that was a great idea not putting the wood on the center stereo console. That's what made me not go this route. Now that I saw yours, I'm thinking about it again. You're right, it does look too excessive with the wood stereo paneling. How did you put the wood on the steering wheel? Does it stick right on it?

Yup man, it was too much, too much, too much.

Anyway, the steering wheel has a REAL wood insert. It is a replacement for your OEM wheel. You order it and they charge you a deposit. When you get it, youi remove your airbag, replace the wheel and reinstall your air bag. Then you send in your OEM steering wheel, and they credit you back that deposit. It is an excahnge program. They say that the installation is easy, but I had Nissan do it when they were working on my fuel indicator problem. They charged me $70. I think I got a little break on it.

That wood feel is so soft and smooth to the touch. I love it!

Big ups to you Thinker. that looks really good. i also agree that the wood around the stereo knob was too much. i like that brushed aluminum. where did you get it ?? let me in on it. I have that oem wood kit and the only two pieces i didn't see was the two at the bottom of the steering wheel. but it still looks awesome. :udaman:

I got my kit from B & I. I would have gone with Burtman Industries, who advertises on this site, except B&I's kit has a few more parts. In particular, I really wanted the trim around the speedometer area and Burtman doesn't offer it. This kit makes a BIG difference, but I find that the shift knob and the steering wheel really complete the effect!

Everything came from Exotic Wood Dash including the steering wheel and shift know. Their website is Exotic Wood Dash However, I would suggest calling them. The website is a little confusing. 1-800-354-4449.

My short term memory sucks, but I believe that I paid about $700 for the complete set-up, including a lot of dash trim that I decided not to use. Keep in mind that you have to pay a deposit for the steering wheel. You get it back when you send in your OEM wheel.
