    Default New Centre Console

    My original centre console was badly scratched when I bought it, so the only option was to change it. In October last year I ordered a new centre console for the Linea Rossa in grey as per the orignal. After 10 days a new one turned up, but it was old stock and also badly marked, so I tried to get a new one. It was a discontinued item so unfortunately I could not get one. I searched the internet but nothing decent turned up so I shelved the idea for a while to concentrate on other area's.

    So this month I decided it had to be done, after a few pointed out again that the centre console was in a bad way.

    Here is the original :-



    After a search, I found a brand new Irmscher mat chrome centre console with mat black top. As I could not keep it original, I thought about doing it piano black but I thought this was a too new style feature for an older car. So after seeing the mat silver set up in a later Astra Edition 100, I figured this was the best way to go.

    So here's the new console :-



    The stripdown complete!



    As the rest of the trim would not match the new console, I primed and painted the rest of the trim in mat black. This is only a tempory measure as I will buy new black trim when I get the chance to get to the dealers to order it all.



    Here's the finished result! I was doubtfull on how it would look, but I think it has bought whole dash a little more up to date.







    Really pleased with it, your opinions as always much appreciated!

    It suits the interior alot better in my humble opinion, and a very nice interior it is too.

    OK, I have done the parts in mat silver for a comparison, the colour match is not bad to be honest and in the sunlight looks pretty much spot on.

    But.......does it look better all silver or in black like the first pictures?
