I know CaysE painted his euro center console black and it turned out nice. If you do a search for some of his interior pics you can see the results.

I guess that depends what color you're going to paint it. If you're going with a factory color, then it should look fine. BTW, yes, people have painted the whole thing before. I don't have any pics offhand, but I'm sure a search will turn up some results with pictures. Out of curiosity, what color were you thinking of?

i saw a fofo once with the whole interior painted one color. to me it's a little much and overwhelming. the same reason why manufaturers use multiple tones (colors) within the interior...

...but hey, who am I to say, it's your car, do it the way you want it!

Here's my ST170 console before I bought it:



A whole can of flat black later:



And in the car... you can see how well the rubber inserts match the console now:

Technically, the one I have is from a Mk1 facelift Ghia sedan since it has the blackwood trim. I never really minded the rear cupholders; it's the way the US console transitions into the dash that I really hate.
