Hmm interesting concept. Done right it can look good, how about turned metal?
They used brushed aluminum, or at least that look in the Honda Pilot interior. I think it looks hokey the way they did it.
I am sure there a expert interior finishers out there that haven't got to the X yet.
You see it in the Honda/Acura street racers, as well as other rods, so why not in an MDX?
All I know is that hell or high water, I'm replacing that wood grain as soon as my MDX arrives I've been into the import scene for a long time and have owned almost every Japanese sports car produced in the 90's (CRX, GSR, RX7 TT, Supra TT, S2000....)and I know there is someone out there who can do this for us!
