    I have a 2013 facelifted EX model accord with the fake wood trim, now I have noticed that the lid of the ashtray has a small cigarette burn mark from the previous owner and it drives me mad so I want to replace it, I have found a replacement on-line that was taken from a 2009 model, the thing is - I know they changed the shade of the grey plastics to a darker hue in the facelift models but did they alter the wood effect? cos if it doesn't match it'll look worse than the small mark.

    Carbon fibre wrap bud? get some carbon fibre sheets from eBay get a hair drier and some old plastic credit cards and practice laying it on !

    cheaper and looks cool too. once you get the hang of it you will get rid of all the wood effect.

    Having owned 3 8th Generation's now I think the fake wood colour is the same but without comparing directly I can't be sure, anybody??
