Upgraded my centre console!

So since I bought my car last year I have hated the centre console as it didn't have an arm rest or more than one power output, so I bought a second hand Titanium X centre console kit, has a few marks but nothing to winge about can easily get them sorted out.

It is actually a straight swap however it's not the easiest thing to do especially when putting the panels back on but if you know what order they need to go in then you're going to be fine. I used the same handbrake cable I already had as I didn't have any axle stands to get underneath the car and do it the easy way. Overall it's the best upgrade I've done to my car to date and it even has heated seat controls if I so wish to install in the future.

I do need some help though, inside the armrest the USB does not work as I couldn't find anything to connect the USB to as it's a separate wire to the big loom. Not a big deal but if you know how I can get it working let me know I would be very grateful.

 

 

Being the complete nut I am I forgot to take a before picture so here is an example of before.

It's at its optimal adjustment between 4-6 clicks. That way you've plenty of movement left, with a reasonable amount of momentum whilst applying

The socket I was using ran out of reach unfortunately so looks like I'll have to take it to a garage to get it further adjusted :'( but for now it sits at 4 click on flat and 6-7 on my driveway.

Looking good! & they bought it in the Christmas sale, keep an eye out. It's on sale at its lower price more than its highest price! Haha

Know anyone with a trade card?  It's cheaper still on trade, feel sorry for the people buying it at full price lol!!  I also upgraded to the 200pc a couple of years ago now, very useful compared to my mates older 170pc. :smile:

On topic though, I can't get used to the weird shape of that handbrake lever, seems to massively over-engineered for no reason lol. :laugh:

I have a trade card, but it's cheaper whilst at its sale price compared to the discount
