This is from Rockit's install gallery on Rennlist, all credit is to him for the instructions.

oh, b@lls, preview is back to front then actual post, ok, not typing again, you'll have to read from bottom up, pretend you're Aussie or something...and there's no step 1 before anyone points it out Cool

additional info:

step 10 - This is the bracket removed. The holes on both sides, closest to you from this view is where the floor mounting bolts went through. This is the set of bolts that the mounting tabs in the carpeting delete unit will slide over. Use the same nuts to affix the unit to the floor. One note: You will need to use a 1/4" drill to re-drill the mounting tabs of the delete unit in order for them to slide over the floor mounting bolts. The holes drilled at the factory are too small for some reason.

...
additional info:

step 7 - This view shows the console's front mounting bracket after the console has been removed(place shift in 2nd gear to pull console out). To remove the console, pull both sides off(attached by clips) and remove the torx screws(two per side). On each side, one screw attaches it to front bracket, one to the rear bracket. Repeat process on the other side.***Note: There is one more torx screw that needs to be removed that is located just below the front edge of the shifter boot in order to lift up the (main) lower center console.***

step 8 - This view shows the shifter bag disconnected from the lower center console. Use a credit card or the like and slide it under the metal bag ring and carefully pop the bag off from it's mounting point. Use a 10 mm flat crescent wrench to remove the nuts that affix the bracket to the mounting bolts on the floor(2 per side).

Whoops, my bad ! wack switched it around today from what it was after some feedback to make it easier !

i.e. the attachment order loaded in is the order it appears instead of the 1st attachment is the last one displayed in the list.

Great work Stuart, I am very tempted. Even if I stay conservative and keep the console its very useful to have the removal tips.

folks

I have a comfort car with half cage and buckets etc.

I am over 6ft and would like to remove the lower centre console (with the storage bin and CD holders) as having driven an RS recently its far more roomy for the legs etc.

has anyone done this?
is it a big job?
can it be changed back when done?

it looks like you need some additional carpet and a blanking plate for the end of the console with the window switches.

many thanks, Nick

Pelican Parts seem to have a kit in black.

Porsche Front Center Console Delete Kit,

looks like about £150 for it delivered to UK with current FX rates and seems fairly easy to do.

any input welcome Wink

One of best and easiest interior mods you can do. Totally reversable, all parts come in kit including carpet.

100% recommend this for extra leg room.

Pictures are loaded backwards, old forum problem, read from bottom up...

Done 3 of these now, very easy - 20 mins ish to do.

Parts are about £130ish from OPC IIRC, but if you ask nicely i'm sure they'll do a bit off of that Thumb

ordered part 1 and 5

£130 from the OPC. few days to come in.....

that's a bit of a saving over getting it from the US plus you have somewhere to return to in the UK.

I feel robbed.....I just paid £131! Very Happy

Now I've pulled the pin on this mod, the current set-up is driving me nuts; it really does limit leg-room, doesn't it?
