are you concerned with the wood coming off and hitting you? Ebay wood is just stuck on with tape or maybe sometimes a little glue also. This stuff would fly off in a crash more then likely.

hope this helps.

One of may favorite crash test videos. I has nothing to do with wood trim, but it's good just the same. W140 S-Class vs Opel Corsa:

i suspect the original query has less to do with the wood coming off in accident, but more do with the fact that wood can splinter badly in an accident, possibly causing further injury. Mercedes claims that its wood is supported by an aluminium strip behind which allows the wood to yield on impact, rather than splinter.

i've used this smiley because i've not seen it before, and i like it. it has nothing to do with wood giving in.
