New Console for My Coupe

The console: Last month, at the Puget Sound Chapter’s Concours, I met a guy that’s making these in two designs – one for ‘02s and one of e9s. We test fit the one had with him and it worked great. The console comes with a slide out cup holder (designed for a Starbuck’s Grande’), black vinyl flip up pad, two storage areas, and optional lock and power port. He designed these for stock seats, so it works even better with my recaros. The design is very well thought out and is made of a light weight black plastic. I’ve being wanting to fabricate something like this for a few years. I wanted a black base to match the upper console/dash and a ‘floating’ pad that matched my leather. Here he had it, ready to go. I bought his first coupe model and asked him to leave off the vinyl. I took the pad and some of my left over leather to a local upholstery shop-told where I wanted the French stitch and voilà!

If anyone's interested in one for their own car, let me know and I'll send you his contact info.

Thanks!

Here's his contact info:

He's charging $188 for each console, l think the lock is extra. His hand written instructions are great and his drawings are amazing. There were a couple of little things I gave him feedback on, but overall it's a great design.

Nope, wedged between the e-brake and passenger seat. What could possibly go wrong?:shock:

I'd like to know the group buy rate.

For the refined vintage bmw owners that we are I prefer to use the term "Trenta" :razz:

It would be cool to have a glove box lock cylinder installed and keyed for that little extra touch
