Okay, I am in love with the wood trim on this executive model (just my poor sense of style). <br><A HREF="http://www.toppingvolvo.com/stkPhotos/ToppingVolvo/259412_s4.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://www.toppingvolvo.com/st...4.jpg</A><p>Was it standard on this model? Is it available through Volvo dealers or aftermarket? If aftermarket, how is the quality and any suggestions on who to purchase from? Maybe the short question is has anyone installed this and how has it held up? <p>Thanks.

Re: Interior wood trim questions (aintsheswede)

I purchased a wood grain kit for my XC-90 to include wooden shift knob and dash. It is a self adhesive kit that you stick on the dash. The wooden gear shift knob was a little harder but the instructions were adequate.<p>My wood grain kit is the darker wood and not the executive model. <p>The kit I purchased is sold by Volvo dealers. If I can I will post some pictures later tonight.

Re: Interior wood trim questions (240_XC90)

Love to see the pics. Are you happy with how it turned out? I think it adds some much needed definition to the graphite/charcol interiors.

^<br>You can't link photos from your computer, you need to upload them to an online host first; like imageshack or Tinypic.

I've done the same on my wife's. I can't believe it's been 5 years but haven't had any problems whatsoever.

Re: After Market Wood Dash Kits

We also did the aftermarket kit on 2005 and it looks good. Not perfect match to Volvo's Wood Steering wheel and center console pieces but close enough that noone else notices the difference.<p>Its been in all manner of hot weather (South Carolina in August) and we've had no issues with adhesion ot discoloration.<p>I'd Recommend it.<br>K
