Granted, Itīs still not to everyones taste, but as said, IRL it allways looks completely different from pictures.

Except of course in the pictures I took :

BTW, about terra and poplar: They donīt match very well. Burl or aluminium are way better matches for terra. Aluminium is best for AW or TiAg
After living with the AW/terra/poplar combo for a while I must agree with your comment about terra/poplar. If I had a do over I would choose burl. However, when available I will install a carbon fiber trim kit, which I think will look great with this interior. If anyone knows of one please post details.
