I don't have any pics, but it does have cupholders. The RS console does not. It should fit in fine, although you may have to find new mounts for the cupholder screws. Its a grea tlooking piece though, so post up pics when you are done![thumb]

I'll post a pic for you later if no one beats me to it. It does have cupholders in the front and one in the rear. They are much nicer than the US ones, because they are one piece of molded rubber in the front instead of the inserts that we have. Also, I agree that you will have to modify the front mounting points for the RS console, but they will work fine for the ST170 console. You will not have to modify anything with the shifter or e-brake, but the rear mounting points do not line up so it will sit a little high in the rear. You can modify it to fit flush if you like, but personally I didn't find it that far off for my tastes.

Here you go:



And yes, if you want the back of the console to fit flush with the floor, you need to cut the stud that's used to secure the stock console. I haven't cut mine yet so the back sticks up, but it doesn't move. I do plan on sorting that out eventually.

I think they do come in dark gray, though I haven't seen one yet. I had to paint mine black. Also be aware that they come in left-hand and right-hand drive. One will not fit the other.

Yep, they do come in dark gray. I've got one in my SVT. I'll try to post a pic for color reference. It's slightly lighter than my EAP interior, but not so much that it jumps out at you.

I am looking forward to that pic Tangerine.

European-parts.net offers a dark grey or a light grey.

ALso to you guys that have it, the shifter surround says it comes in black wood, red wood, or silver.

does it actually look like wood, or is it a solid color? I cant really tell from Casye's pic

Blackwood looks like this in direct sun. In dim lighting though, it just looks gloss black:





Red wood looks like regular wood grain.

Here's a couple pics of my dark gray one. I didn't have a lot of natural light, so it's kinda hard to tell the color difference. I may repaint it later, but for now I'm OK with it.

I think I'll hold on to it for right now, but if I decide I do want to paint it I'll let you know and we might trade just to save me the trouble.
