Well...I managed to spend a few weeks to plan

...and fabricate a stealth ash-tray install myself!

This unit operates:
-Passport Qi45, with laser shifters
-Whelen PA/Air Horn (top switch, mic in glove box)
-Whelen white LED strobes on all 4 corners (bottom switch)

...and will still allow for the cover to close, hiding all the goodies!

The pictures below are from my e90 335i (on 12/6/10 it will be instaled into my 2011 e90 M3 - Space Gray, Carbon Leather & 1/2Red, 1/2 Black interior):



Items Used in Fabrication:
  • E90 OEM ashray - Dealer $12
  • Hella LED switch (red LED) - Amazon $5
  • JR mini-momentary Switch - Amazon $3
  • 1/8" PVC sheet 1' x 1' - Amazon $7
  • LocTite Plastic Epoxy - HomeDepot $5
  • 3M DiNoc "Carbon Leather" - pyspeed 1' x 4' ($30)
  • Dremel
  • Hairdryer
  • ~4 hours +/- over a week (trial and error on PVC cutting and ashtray material removal
