New Center Console for the Brilliant White Beast

I wanted this from day one, but BMW Performance did not offer one to match the rest of their interior parts. I was able to find a center console up for sale on this forum for a good price, so I made the move. I sent it out for the CF overlay and it turned out great!

It matches the BMW performance dash pieces very close and I love the finish. I think it really sets off the interior now and was the missing piece all along.

I performed the install myself and it only took about 20 minutes. The sunglass tray cover was a little tricky, but went on easy once I figured out the trick.

Here are a few pics. (fyi, I am no photographer and can't quite capture the beauty of this piece)









Let me know what you think!

Looks really nice. Looks like it came from the factory that way.

Looks great.

Is there a DIY for the center console removal?

I used the following company to cover my center console in CF 2x2.

http://www.nvdautosport.com/carbon/carbon_fibre.html

nvdautosport@yahoo.com

The person to address the email to is Prapan. All communication was with email and the turnaround time was not very bad considering he is located in Bangkok, Thailand.

Please let him know that Larry from Arizona recommended you.

You should search the forums, but I could explain it if you wanted me to.
