05-07 Console in 00-04 with Stick?

Just wondering if anyone's ever done this and if there is any advantage. The cupholders are weak and don't have enough clearance with the dash for large drinks on the passenger side.

Well, 02-07 all have the same consoles. The only difference is armrest or non-armrest.

Now I see you have an 01 with the smaller cupholders, so I guess the newer consoles would be an upgrade. Tall drinks will still hit the dash though.

I lucked out and found a 02-05 "EDM" console, it has the best compromise. It holds normal sized drinks like a glove,the 32oz will still lean in the front, but they fit in the rear holder without fear of spillage.

Apparently the designers didn't actually test the dash clearance for drinks, that's only thing I really hate about these cars.

Nice, I'll look out for that. My girlfriend's son left a 32 oz of red Powerade in the back cupholder FULL so I'm very conscious of the limitations of the rear cupholder haha

lol, only way a powerade bottle is fitting in our cupholders is if the lid is on tight and you stick it in there upside down


I do not like the armrest version, it gets in the way when driving stick..might be a personal preference for me. If you are going to swap, the SVT's have a second power source on console otherwise they are pretty much the same.

That might be a major selling point for me. I'm gonna be on the lookout for one now.

And the powerade, for the record, was from Sonic, so it was in a cardboard cup with a lid. And I drove for two days without knowing it was there, waiting for me to hook a sharp turn and spill it all over my carpeting.
