We are getting our new 2013 XC70 T6 soon that comes with the standard glossy "classic wood" trim. We are not a fan of the glossy look, as it just seems too plastic/fake looking compared with the rest of the beautiful Scandinavian interior. We prefer something matte real wood and elegant much like Audi is doing these days.

We found via the accessories catalog, the option to order two other wood variants, but we can not find any photos or examples of how they may look...

The options are "Modern Wood" or "Walnut Brown", both described as being walnut with a matte finish, but no photos or descriptions to indicate what they actually look like.

We contacted Volvo NA, but even they did not have a photo of the finishes...

Any input on seeing what these two woods look like and what may be the difference?

Thanks!

I would think removing the plastic trim, hitting it with some 00 steel wool and a little Armor-All to "seal" it - would come out well?
