Edition white center console

Hello,

Do you know where can I get the white center console from edition white models? I think it looks great.

I'd recommend getting a used center console
Pealing the leather, and send it to IND to paint for you
Keep in mind, it will scratch very easily
It's a part that sees constant use
You could also wrap it so when it gets scratched, you just peel it and re-wrap it

The pic was from the press announcement about the Edition models. Came out in mid 2009. Did they actually even produce the white center console for production Edition models?

But didn't know there was any change to the steering wheel buttons

I believe the button below the M button changed from a programmable one (marked by a star) to one which cycles audio sources (marked by a CD?).

Also, the line going down the centre of the leg rests on the seats and the REST button on the climate controls; the list goes on

Is the center console section covered in leather? I just assumed it was textured plastic, but I took a closer look today and now I'm not so sure.

That is a picture of an alpine edition, a special edition M3. Like mine is an M3 Monte Carlo edition which was launched at the same time. If you can get the chasis number of an Alpine edition car you should be able to order the center console. My car just had a black center console before I changed it for the glossy carbon fibre one but it was leather so I believe the white center console would be white leather also.

There's also the easy way: Edition cars were all MY10

The center console trim is covered in leather
If you've ever removed yours and looked underneath, you can see it's wrapped
In leather

Never took mine apart, so thanks for the confirmation. I am probably one of three guys on the planet with Black Extended leather, so it's cool to know I have even more than I realized

Thanks guys. I might buy a used center console and get it wrapped with white leather somewhere. It will be probably cheaper as well.
