It seems like a pretty easy DIY to me. Shift and brake boots pop off. Then the top of the console pops off. Unplug some wires, the ash tray, then there are some screws toward the front to undo. Now comes the part I haven't done before and that is getting the rear part of the center console free. I assume you need to pull up the cover where the phone adapter would go first and that would give you some access to other screws. There are wires back there too, depending on options you might have, but I'm sure there are harnesses making it easy to unplug. So I don't think this is rocket science. I can do everything up to the rear in less than five minutes. The rear part I've not done, so I don't know how much more it would take, but if it goes as easily as the first part, then this is really a piece of cake. And it's probably a lot similar to install. Just IMHO.


Cheers.
That doesn't sound too bad...did you get around to doing it? I'd love to put extended Silver Novillo on mine....

I have the black extended console on order, as well as the glovebox. It is being sent somewhere for some paint, and then will be installed shortly after. Will update as it progresses.

I'm very interested in the outcome of this. I didn't get the extended as well because I didn't think I would notice it in black. But recently, I feel there's something missing around the center console - definitely like the visible stitching.

Who did you order the black extended console from? Any reason why you did the glovebox, but not the entire extended leather setup?

Would you be able to PM me with details? Thanks!

Ordered from GOLFRR's parts guy Robert at Steve Thomas. Got the glove compartment because it has stitching and cost a little over $100. The full dash in leather is very expensive and very expensive to install. The center console is the eat part of it, and the box was cheap, so that's all I got.

So you ordered the extended leather center console in black? How much was it? Also I wasn't aware that part of the extended leather included leather wrapped glove box...I thought it was just matching color plastic. How much for the black extended center console?

The center console is around $550. The glove box and entire lower dash are leather. If you look at a non-black extended car, you will see exactly what should be leather.

Holy crap is that cheap. I have "full leather" in my cayman and apparently "full leather" means no leather on the center console to the germans. Over $2k to add it after the fact.

That looks great! Will show better than my black one. Wish they offered the extended in a mix of palladium and black.
