There was a member a while back that did that and it looked very nice. Not really my kind of thing but it does look nice.

I really like the fact they wrapped the interior of the GXP in leather and leather looking materials. I wouldn't like it in the Bonne. I remember the one Dan was talking about, it looked to much like he wanted it to be a Buick or Caddy. Bonne'* to me want sporty.

IMO if you use the right tone of wood and dont get to excessive with it like for example puting wood over the radio and other places that the factory wouldn't put it you should be fine. you can also get it in brushed aluminum or carbon fiber.

Personally, I'm not a fan of wood trim unless it'* on older vehicles and or true luxury vehicles. Again, this is all about personal taste and if it'* something you want go for it.
