Default 2gs woodgrain

So this is a picture of my interior. I recently swapped my shift **** to a sandalwood RX330 **** to match my steering wheel. Apparrently it the only one that lexus offers in all woodgrain that comes in sandalwood. What do you guys think about it? It's about 1.5inches bigger than the 2GS **** so i had to remove the chrome part.

I have never liked that normal wood look and that doesn't make an exception.
It wouldn't look as dull with the black shift boot though.

looks horrible. I had one and immediately got rid of it. It's big, bulky and doesn't sit flush. Bought the SC; much better

your car, if you like it then keep it.

I have the RX blackwood one. to make it fit with the chrome piece just wet a piece of paper and shove a little ball of paper inside until the chrome piece fit. Just don't over stuff it. Still needs a few thread to catch. Once the paper dries out you can tighten it down till it stops. The chrome will sit a little inside the shifter bezel.

Could you not source a steering wheel that matched the rest of the cars wood grain?

I would've cut about 1.5" off the bottom and done some custom inlay work... i don't really like the all wood design... but hey if you like it then keep it! what is the point of having a car if you cant make it yours!

Not really a fan of all wood. I think it would look good if there was a chrome trim around the bottom tho
