I originally had my centre console carbon dipped to match the rest of the dash but as I prefer bright things I bought a red one off a guy on the Facebook owners forum... I prefer it in red but am sure others don't as usual 😎

I like it, makes the interior seem lighter, then again my whole interior is red so not sure my opinion is worth that much! thumbsup

It's on ebay under boxster parts. I paid £140 Inc postage for mine if you want it now that's the price.

Personally I love the red and the red armrest works well with the red inserts on your seats and door panel inserts , also assume you have red seatbelts Thumb Thumb ah just spotted they are black think red would be good IMO Thumb

I kind of like the painted centre console..... "not a fan" of the various red leather bits...

which is as you predicted Very Happy

Do like someone making a car their own for its own sake though!!!

Too much red for me too, sorry OP Sad

Centre console is a winner, but the doors are a bit overkill in my eyes thumbsup

I would have done the centre console and left it as the red stitching looks great!

I reckon red seat belts front and rear would finish that off nicely. I still prefer my old Savannah interior to the drab black of my turbo.

Too much red in there IMO, maybe go back to all black mats and tone it down a little elsewhere.

This is what I would do:

Add red seat belts and console button surround in black.

Lose red on doors, seats and the leather console parts.

All for mods and personalising so at the end of the day, if you like it then that's all that matters Very Happy
