I'm not even sure if that was available for the M3s as a dealer option. I believe the regular e9x non-M model aluminum trim covered the center console but that is different from the M brushed aluminum in color and design.

You are correct. A brushed aluminum center console is not available OEM for the M3. The E9x version will not fit an M3 due to a different shape of the shift boot and the M-specific buttons to the left of the shifter. Your options are to buy a painted version or a carbon fiber version from IND... or take your chances with an aftermarket version. Keep in mind that the OEM M3 version is wrapped in leather. Some people mistakenly think it's soft touch plastic.

Thanks guys. I was hoping for an OEM one that would match cleanly, but I guess I'm out of luck. Also, I just noticed last week that it was leather, as I had thought it was plastic myself for a bit. I'll check out what IND has.

Has anyone seen any aftermarket ones? If they're decent quality I'd still be interested in looking.
