What's to stop me from grabbing a piece of mahogany and fabricating my own dash insert? Sounds like a fun woodworking project.

Does anyone have a link/picture to the Ash Burlwood insert? I can't find anything. I'm assuming it would be darker and browner than the bamboo.

The attached picture worked great. Odd though, since they describe it a "matte", yet the piece in the photo was quite glossy.

Either way, I think I like the Burl better than bamboo for my Starfire Pearl/Black. $114 at Sewell w/discount.

Thanks for posting the links.

Edit: Now that I look at it again, I guess the silver piece above it makes it look glossy. The wood isn't.

I just ordered the ash for $114 + S/H. Did you see it lower?

If they raised prices it may be they were selling below their costs!

The Lexus Accessory Bulletin ACCY 2011-04 has the following Dealer Costs:

Bamboo Panel $125
Burl Wood Panel $125
Graphite Metallic Panel $95

Bamboo Inserts

I looked at the inserts yesterday and they were the same price...$199...they didn't raise them. Also, to DGSTAN, how did you get a discount at Sewell for parts if you don't mind me asking?

You need to become a registered member on the Club Lexus Forum

Then register at Sewell with the same user ID and password

Then when you log on to Sewell you see the CLF members discounted price.

The regular price on Sewells normal web site is not the same as CLF member pricing.

:):):)

Update just checked Sewell Site - still $114 for bamboo and walnut

Yes, do what Audi said. Register through Club Lexus. That's a crazy discount - over 40% off.

No, it's not just you. It looks like the pricing has been updated and now the bamboo and ash show as $151.25 and only the black metallic shows as $114.95.
