    Yeah got some carbon goodness. The alloy ones all have marks on them and the driver door one is for the bin i think. The rest are not too bad but hardly mint. I found out that the gear stick surround on a double din centre console is different from a single din anyway.

    That i found out too when swapping to the TQS.
    I was gonna let the CF all go together, but the CF for the DD had to stay as the single DIN trim wouldnt work.

    The gear surround fits but is about 3" short at the back so ill nee to make a plate to fill the gap. What did you get rid of the carbon for?

    you will have 2 screws covered by caps either side on the handbrake console, then remove the little handrake tab under the handbrake handle you will need a thin stubby screwdriver or similar. the the leather handle will slide off, then remove rear ashtray, unbolt the armrest if you have one, might be some bolt/screw under the little console carpet. slide the rear console back a bit.
    1.Then passenger side of centre console another cap.
    2. mine is a Symphony HU so that came out 1st, you will find more bolts behind that
    3.wedge out HVAC climate next
    4. hazard fog trim off more bolts
    5. ashtray more bolts
    6. flip off gear stick surround should pop off
    7. pull out centre console all this for 1 clip will be dead centre above the hazard switch area
    think thats almost it

    Mine have a few marks, so ideally I wanted nice condition ones. What sort of price are they new ? Extortionate ?

    Can anyone differentiate the part numbers for the door trims ? I've just looked on ETKA and there is several colour codes / numbers for various Silver / Aluminium trims ?
