In Reply to: Aluminum trim, comment? posted by ian on February 17, 1999 at 16:57:18:

I still can't decide whether I should go with wood or stay with aluminum.

I saw the silver/black leather/aluminum combo and IMHO it's very beautiful with the high contrast look effect. But I'm now concerned about the visibility of fingerprints + sweats and annoying glares.

On the other hand, I also think wood trim doesn't fit the sporty image of the car. And I've never actually seen black leather + wood combo, so I really have no idea how they look.

I guess I'll go to the dealer tomorrow and hopefully they have a black / wood combo that I can look at.

Thanks very much for the advice, I really appreciate them.


: Does anybody here have a car with the aluminum trim? What do you think of it? Does it look like something that will last long?

: The reason I'm asking is because I was talking to a friend about my preference of aluminum over wood trim but he said that aluminum finish would probably deteriorate after a while, especially when exposed to sweat, etc.

: I'm getting titanium silver with black leather, and I've seen how beautiful the aluminum trim fits into this combo. But now I'm wondering if I should get the wood trim. Please advise.

: Ian
