I know it doesn't match the rest of the dash but it feels 10x better than the light plastic shift ****. I really like how it actually has some weight to it and doesn't feel like an insignificant part.
Maybe I'll give the wood a darker stain to blend in a bit more.
Do you have the bamboo dash trim? It might match and look like it was meant to be ...
I have the bamboo trim and like it. At first I thought it looked a little out of place in the black interior but I like the whole green feel to it.
I actually don't have the bamboo dash trim I am thinking of staining the wood a bit darker so that it doesn't stand out as much. I like the feel of it more so I'm not concerned about the looks right now
