Middle section you need to remove the lower part of the centre console. Start with ashtray, then gear gaiter and surround. Then remove the 2 triangles next to the headunit / A/C. Remove the 2 screws T20's I think they are.

Then pry off the lower plastic section only clipped in once the screws are out. Then you can get to the middle section with the screen. Pull down and towards you holding on to where the vents are. Should come straight off.

The side ones, need to push a trim tool down them to get them to come away. They are only clipped in as well.

Think the main problem with that is going to be reflections in the summer. Might end up driving you mad then.

Maybe, I don't know because
1 - I'm running out of stickers
2 -I don't want it to be overkill

Might do the little ashtray thing that's on the back of the centre console just so it goes through the whole inside of the car.

I have followed this thread but refrained from commenting other than to add a comment and resize the images.

But no more, next time it happens, the post gets deleted as per site rules.

As for what your doing to the car, really not my scene at all I'm afraid and as far as I'm concerned you reached 'overkill' a while back

Glovebox handle might work too. As there is lots of black there, break it up a bit.

If you put the speedo display back to black I think it would be perfect.

I wouldn't do the air con controls. Based on your last set of pics, leaving the air con controls and your aftermarket stereo facia as-is looks good.

However, I think it might look good if you also do the ashtray underneath the aircn controls. This just pulls out (in order to access the diagnostic port behind it) so getting it out in order to sticker bomb the lid will be very easy.

If you have the rear one, do that as well, but then I'd stop (only because you'll have run out of practical things to cover).

Do post pics (but resize them, or use thumbnail links so we can see them in full size elsewhere).

Either way, you've created a fantastic & unique car.

sorry for the pics, ill makes sure i do it right in future but please as i said if you dont like it dont read/look at it.

If you think its overkill or ive gone too far thats your opinion and you entitled to it and i respect it.

I have done this to MY car because I like it.

My favourite part is still the steering wheel chevrons.
