Just purchased a beautiful 1998 Outback Legacy. One of the small details I dislike about it is the wood trim pieces. Any thoughts? Replacement? Swap?

Find one in the junkyard that has black trim, and just swap it out. I did that when I had my 98, I hated the fake wood trim.

95 to 99 legacy (outback) interiors are swappable.

check out the linh below to see which ones have the ''fake wood plastic trim''.

 

i think the GT had it.

i had a 97 OBW LTD and i dont remember the fake wood trim,

but i could just not remember, a senior moment if you will.

Some outbacks have the wood trim, some don't.  Your best bet is an L model 2nd gen anything. All the trim pieces are the same sedan/wagon. The only difference is auto/manual.

Took some carbon fiber vinyl to the wood trim pieces. Doesn't look professional, doesn't look like a five year old did it. Quick fix until I replace with something more permanent. Thanks for the help.
