I have Asian Night interior in my 2013 Interstate. I have used a combination of two Minwax wood satins to get a good color match on some of the extra things I installed like a small desk behind the driver seat and a galley countertop extension. I use Minwax® Wood Finish Oil-Based Penetrating Stains, using Classic Grey 271 as a base coat and then top coat with Ebony 2718.
Like most staining to get a good color match technique is a factor. Good to try on some scrap pieces first to get confidence. I just did the same thing on the oak flooring and stair project I'm working on right now. My COVID Pandemic home remodeling project since I could travel like normal this year. The flooring is finished now in Bruce solid oak, Gunstock color. But the standard Gunstock Oil-Based Penetrating Stains I tried for the trim and stair parts was way too red. So I base stained with Golden Oak on some parts or English Chestnut on others and top coated with Gunstock that gave me a color that closely matches the flooring.
If you just need to cover some minor scratched, then the Old English Scratch Cover works well.
