Congratulation on the '90 90Q20V.  I have the year and model, except it 
is white.  It is certainly a lovely car to have.  I'm sure you'll love it 
as much as I do.  As for the wood panel.  I have no idea what wood it 
is.  It's a pitty they leave hole(s) on it.  If I were you, I wouldn't 
replace the panel, rather, if possible, find something that would cover 
or disguise the hole(s), or install an alarm for your car.  I've 
installed an alarm on my car - "Crime Stopper" with remote keyless entry, 
etc. It works great.  They may by able to the hole on the existing panel.

By the way, I've also replaced the original shifter knob (black leather) 
with an after-market wood knob, matching the wood panel.  It looks really 
nice, certainly enhances the interior.  I think you'll like it.

Yes, I thought exactly the same when I first got my car.  In fact my 
lovely wife was the first to notice that.  But it is confirmed that there 
is only one rear fog light.  It is the european standard indicating the 
left rear of a vehicle that may be parked on the side of a highway.

I don't know about heated door locks, I just assumed mine doesn't have 
it. Perhaps if someone on the q list may help both of us.
I only use my heated seat once in a while.  To be honest, I wouldn't 
miss it even if I don't have it.  I guess I don't like sitting on a hot seat.
