I'm not big on my current woodgrain in the car. I'm told replacing it with flat black plastic trim is a chore and a half and not worth it. I've seen people do Carbon Fiber over wood, and it looks nice, but I'm not that big on CF. I was thinking a look more like the V70R AWD with the black plastic and aluminum trim on the center console.<P>Second question is where to find a good set of aluminum dash trim for the console on an 850.

Hi George,<P>Try ebay for the aluminum dash kit for the 850/70. I bought a set of CF dash trim from AAA exoticwood in NJ through ebay. Installation was easy. Only problem is that they don't cover the original wood trim all the way, so I had to paint the edges of the wood trim black before I installed my CF trim.<P>Terence

George:<P>Try <A HREF="http://www.samsteffansson.se/samindex.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.samsteffansson.se/samindex.html</A> <BR> and look for the interior styling link. They have the wood grain, CF and aluminum dash kits. I contemplated getting the wood grain, but wasn't sure of the fit. A nice fellow from Sweden on the Brickboard emailed me with pictures of his install, and it was perfect. I would imagine that the aluminum would also turn out the same way.<P>Unfortunately they only have pics of the wood grain, but their catalog may have pictures. Good luck and of course - great site. The only thing you need now is Ebb Viscous to come over to the forums! :) <P>- Adam<BR><P>

Thanks guys. I actually sent to AAA for a sample of the kit. They take some of the small punchouts and send them to you for free. Nice service.<P>On their aluminum kit, it was some sort of silver material underneath a clear poly-looking cover. It wasn't aluminum, or at least it wasn't just straight aluminum as I was hoping for and like the V70R awd had.
