Has anyone gotten the wood trim for both the dashboard and interior with the dark grey interior and more specifically, with the Starlight Silver Pilot?

I was talking accessories with my salesman the other day and when I told him that I was thinking of getting the wood trim installed on my car, he kind of scrunched up his nose and told me, that even though it just his opinion, he did not think that it would look good.

Any thoughts??:cool: :cool:

I plan to install the wood trim in my SS pilot with grey interior. I saw and felt the trim at the local deal and it is real good quality--not real wood though. It is dark burlwood tone, which will go good with the grey interior. I saw the trim (dash and doors) in a demo with brown interior and it look really sharp.

Who cares what the dealer thinks anyway! Its what you think that's important.

Case-in-point, the pictures of the Havasu with gold emblems & chrome bumper garnish. I really don't think that some of these dealers even have a clue!

You listened to a guys opinion regarding something to do with color/design :eek: :8: :D .

If you are unsure how it will look, add this accessory later, maybe after you have seen photos of other installs.

No offense to the men on this site :22:.

Very nice

That dark wood does look pretty darn good. Maybe I'll look for that set advertised elsewhere on this site again. I was a little iffy on the wood in a silver vehicle.

Looks really cool. I was debating it, now I am really going to
get it. For about 100 bucks -- this might be the best 100 bucks
I spend on this car. I think the wood wheel will look good with
it too.

I ordered, received, and tried the Exotic Wood Dash package ... and was dissapointed with the fit, finish and color. My search continues though ... the color I would like to find is a black wood trim, similar to those found in BMWs. I think that would look great with the grey interior ... if not ... it's the Honda kit for me ... can't go wrong with the dash kit made by Honda, made for the PILOT ...

Thank you for the picture, MDXlite! I thought it looked great and just ordered it to be installed on my new Pilot which is currently being accessorized at the dealership as we speak.

I will let everyone know how it looks when I get it this weekend!!

Woodgrain trim

We have all the factory woodgrain trim on my wife's Pilot - even though the Fern is a derivative of gray, it looks great! One item not listed on the Honda Pilot web site is woodgrain trim for the RES if you have it. Everyone who kas seen my wife's Pilot comment on how great the woodgrain looks. We had looked an a Lexus special edition with the birdseye maple trim and liked the Honda better...:2:

Here's what the installation for the RES trim looks like...RES woodgrain trim

wood!

IMHO I think the trim looks nice. The pictures lighten the gray a bit more than it really is I think. But it looks ok in the pics and even better in real life when the gray looks darker.

Hey Chiquita...

Check out Jeffola's posts. He installed a gray wood trim and posted pics. I'm in the same market and can't decide what color to go with either.

Hilgerone... That dark wood does look good. :cool:
But I have the lt gray (fern) interior... maybe need to go lighter?

Chiquita, Take that board they have in the service dept in the Pilot and go from there. My dealer has a maybe 1x2 sample board. Thought that's how I'd really see what looked good.

Sage,

I had my woodgrain interior installed by the dealer when my Pilot arrived and I have to say that I really like it. I have had my car for just about 3 months and I like it as much now as when I first got it.
We also got the wooden knob for the shift lever, but not the wooden steering wheel, which I have to say looks very nice from the pictures that hilgerone posted. The pics look really beautiful, hilgerone. Thanks for posting them!! Is that the Honda OEM trim or the after market? It could just be the lighting, but it looks a little darker and a little more exotic than mine.
