Center Console Replacement?

My Console Issue: I don't know about any of you, but I absolutely hate the center console!

I hate that the armrest is designed for automatic driving, not shifting. I hate that it takes up so much space on the floor (it's huge!) and in the backseat floor area (no one is ever there ... but it's the thought of it!) and I hate it; in general.

I had heard there is a different version without armrest, possibly in the SVT cars but cannot get a picture of it anywhere to see if I would like it. I have a part number in my ford focus service manual, so I'll venture to the dealer soon and check it out, probably end up buying it off a ford parts discounted website still depending on price ... but seriously; any other alternatives?

I ran without a console for about 6 months earlier in the year, but it's a hassle without cupholders and looks bad all exposed like that ... any suggestions? know anyone who does custom ones?

it's black. I should've got it on ebay when I had the chance ... I found one for $19.99 + S&H but I didn't bid on it (I know - crazy price) but we'll have to see. I'm going to check with ford and see what's going on. Do you have any pics of it in the mean time?

I'm thinking about making a new one out of fiberglass and mdf. The cupholders are in the wrong place and the tray storage sucks. I am happy with the armrest and will be removing the mounting bracket and joining it to my new console. Unfortunately, I leave for school in two weeks and have no time to do it this season. I'll post something later on in the year to let you know how it turned out.

I don't know if an 05 would fit my set-up? I wouldn't mind trading, it's just sitting in my garage right now, apparently shipping is crazy on these things though, maybe because they're oversize or something?
