    Basalt XME center console? And other annoying questions . .

    So my build date got pushed into November and I keep searching this forum and keep questioning my option list!

    Does anyone have any pictures of black leather interior with rear center console painted in Basalt Black? I had selected this, but now reconsidering vs. leather (XMZ). I'm now thinking that the interior may get too busy with Black Leather, Adaptive Sport Seats (A.S.S.) Volcano Grey seat backs AND Basalt Black center console. Any opinions, experiences, pics?

    Also - can someone confirm whether the storage lid comes with leather stitching with the Full Leather option or do you need to ALSO order CPT (Porsche crest) or CUV (model logo) to get this?

    Apologies and many thanks! I'll be much happier when I get locked out of being able to make changes.

    Re: Basalt XME center console? And other annoying questions . .

    The storage lid is fully stitched without resorting to the CPT or CUV (also I got the latter). The interior is as busy as you make it. I personally couldn't stand having that Volcano Grey on the back of your ASS so I had mine covered with leather. What do you want to touch on a hot day? A painted BLACK surface or a black LEATHER surface? With a coupe it might not be that big a diff.

    You can do the painted console after delivery, and save hundreds of dollars.

    Yeah, we do that.

    Thanks Eric. I've done lost of searches on this forum and Rennlist and it is obvious from all the comments that you make a great product for great value. It's a good option to consider - though I shudder at the thought of me taking a screwdriver to a $100k car for install. The posts seem to suggest it's relatively easy, but I'm a far better driver and enthusiast than I am a mechanic! Will definitely consider.

    Cheers,
    Andrew

    Dan everytime I look at your car I love it more and more. That is one sweet ride you have.

    Re: Basalt XME center console? And other annoying questions . .

    Many thanks for the pics. They look great!

    And yes, Dan's car is off the charts gorgeous.

    As standard, the rear centre console storage compartment lid is in leather but unstitched. However, I didn't know that if you get the rear centre console in leather (code XMZ) then the rear centre console storage compartment lid is in stitched leather without having to specify CUV (model logo on lid) or CPT (Porsche crest on lid). Thanks. I have chosen XMZ and CUV anyway....

    Eric:

    How difficult is removing and replacing the console? I'm not totally clueless with a screwdriver, but worry about damaging the car.
