Does anyone have a recomendation of the best place to buy the necessary trims for the center console delete mod?

I sold my original seats at the weekend and the chap also wanted the heated seat trim panel so the resulting hole in the dash has brought forward my console delete plans Grin

I see that they sell the main section on D911 but wondered if anyone knew better?


Thanks,

John

Can't understand why people buy 'Porsche' parts from design911 when they are so often cheaper from the OPC (and D911 have twice sold me the wrong parts, something the OPC doesn't do - they check).

You have to call an OPC, or email them - D911 you can just buy what you want.

Convenience trumps price for many.

Also to note, I called D911 a while ago to ask if the kit on the website was inclusive of the small plastic trim he said no and proceeded to look the part up for me to see what it costs extra and if i remember rightly we laughed as he said a price like 500+ for it! the chap on the phone even said he doesn't understand the price for a square of plastic! Confused

Carnewal kit has everything included in the price I was quoted above though Thumb

Always pays to shop around, if you have the time - Carnewal quoted €4,040 for a set of four BBS LM's, I found the same wheels from Driftworks were €3,355, a £600 saving (apologies for the mix of currencies).

I agree, I found stuff like anti roll bars and H&R springs cheaper on Larkspeed or Venonmotorsport than most other places!

£206 for 4 pieces, the main carpeted part, the two carpeted side panels and the plastic bit that finishes off the now exposed centre console.

I was very pleased with the prices.

It’s all on order but should be with me by the end of the week. Will update with some pictures once it arrives.

Sorry to be a lazy git, can you share part numbers you bought to get this done?
It's on my list of things to do just can't get around to browsing the part catalog!!

Pictures would be amazing too!

Saw that on there but you need 4 parts in total and that actual part is cheaper from Porsche!

Plus I’m not 100% sure that’s a genuine part, my 996’s carpet certainly doesn’t look like that Dont know

It looks genuine to me and has the 2 side pieces included so you just need the plastic cover piece.

My parts arrived today!

The main section of trim actually comes from Porsche with the side panels attached already! My dealer obviously didn't know this as they ordered additional side trims too. These will be returned.

This is quite good news as it means that the modification is even cheaper!

For those interested here are the parts needed;

Cover - P98655211302A10 - £108.72 + VAT
Hider - P98655224012A03 - £34.47 + VAT

Thats it! Total cost, from a Porsche main agent, of £171.82. These are the part numbers for the items in Black. No doubt there are slight variations for the other trim colours.

Fitting is easy, just remove the retaining screws of the centre console and lift it up. The new parts thn slide in and clip into the original clips left by the removal of the original centre console.

Overall I think its a great mod and well priced especially for genuine parts.

I have no idea of how to add pictures on here though frustrated

That’s my fat fingers!

That should be 98655224102A03.

Those are the only two items you need to order, the first is the main carpet part which actually includes the two separate side sections and the second is the small plastic cover that sits in front of the gearstick.
