    Wood Trim - RPO B20

    Are there other varieties of wood trim for the 2006 model year? i.e. is it really Eucalyptus? Is RPO B20 something special on the 1SG? Or is it all just a generic faux wood after all...

    Echas3,I can answer that question for you.For the 2006 model year of the STS, there was only one type of wood used and it was 100% genuine REAL Eucalyptus wood. NO fake plastic wood on any STS with wood trim.Option code B20 is for the full wood package on the 1SF and 1SG packages on the STS V8. It included real wood on the center stack, console, Instrument panel spear on the passenger side of the dash, all door pulls, steering wheel, and gear shift knob.The Eucaplyptus wood came in Medium or Dark color depending on the color of the interior. Light Gray and Black interiors got the Dark wood. Cashmere interiors got the Medium wood.The 1SE STS V8 got the wood trim package with less of the above areas covered with wood. It is option code B19.Option code B19 above is standard in the 1SB package for the STS V6. Option code B20 above is standard in the 1SC package for the STS V6.Hope this helps!skexius

    Does anyone know where I can get the wood trim for the door pulls and the steering wheel? I have a 06 V6 STS with gray interior. I want to just buy the 4 door pulls and the steering wheel piece.

    The steering wheel piece requires a new steering wheel...

    I would like to get the door pulls as well if anyone knows of a source..

    Also, my center stack surround looks to be "fading" there's a section along the top with no grain to it at all, just a tan splotch..

    There is a complete woodgrain set on ebay for $399 and my surround for my radio/navi unit faded also. There was a faded spot at the top that was approx 1 x 3 inches. It was replaced under warranty too at a cost of $648.97

    Whew! I saw the $400 set. I'd expect a different RPO for the Medium vs. Dark wood.

    My wife's 2007 Hertz version says 1SE but it has all the same wood trim that I have.

    Echas3,Remember, the information on the wood trim packages above that I gave was for the 2006 model year STS only!For the 2007 model year STS V8, the full B20 Wood trim package was made standard on ALL STS V8s. So, your wife's car would have the full wood package even in the 1SE trim.Standard and optional features may and do change from year to year on most cars.skexius

    Yea, I'm wanting to ask the dealer about it. Just not a big enough thing to take the car in for. I'll mention it at the next oil change, or unplanned service.

    I also want them to check on the hood, it has some spots like small holes in the clearcoat that don't seem to be "chips" but more like problems with the paint..

    skexius ,

    thank you so much for your detail! It is just what I was looking for. I have a 1Sg and couldn't figure out witch one to order to replace my broken one. For those keeping score, Order Medium Eucalyptus I/P ACSRY CTR TRIM PLATE P/N 10388012 or Dark Eucalyptus P/N 10388011

    Re: Wood Trim - RPO B20

    Please keep in mind that the wood provided by Cadillac is real, but are paper thin veneers over a solid substrate and covered with a heavy protective clear coat like a polyurethane varnish. What the means is that we get a lot of mileage out of a piece of wood, but that this is an assembled product. In some cases it is reparable, but it is still thin. All cars, even Rolls Royce are that way. Chevys, Fords - probable plastic all the way. Lexus - I don't know, but they cornered the world on birds-eye maple veneers a while back.
