Wood Accents


Recommended Posts

Has anyone seen a 2014 that doesn't have the Mineral Caster Wood accents as standard?

 

 

I'm not a fan of wood trim and am curious if GM will offer aluminum for the doors & center console.. or maybe the only choices will be Mineral Caster v/s Grand Lace, with Aluminum reserved only for the dash.

I really don't know. Even if you could find them (OEM)... I doubt you could actually get your hands on them right now. Seems like all the GM suppliers are are short on parts trying to keep up with new builds. ..

No shortage of fake wood as GM had a bunch left over from the 1974 station wagon run that did not sell as well as planned. Fake wood was sooooo 1973.

 

 

so its only GM that uses fake wood?

 

i have been in quite a few lower end BMW's and MB's that have fake wood. off the top of my head my buddies 06 325i has fake wood all over center console and dash

I tried to order the Grand Lace specifically and I was told that there was no way for them to specify and I would get whatever was in the box when my truck rolled down the assembly line...

I so despise plastic wood trim. They go to the trouble of using real aluminium trim on the dash but then tack on a few extra strips of that crud. It's like they just couldn't bring themselves to cut the last remnants to the 1970s.

 

Who is it at GM design who thinks customers still want that junk in 2013??

Why have real wood? Far from perfection and figment would be difficult to replicate. A veneer might peel over time . I'm cool with the plastic wood, and even prefer the would to the aluminum look. Maybe add some grain texture to it if anything.
