I was trying to take out the "flapper" that covers the two cupholder holes (was going to cover it with leather or some suade) but I broke the two side clips so the thing is now useless. Besides, my center console (between front seats - including armrest) is pretty scratched up. Is it possible to get an 06-07 center console? ...has it been done before? I wonder how much that would run me.

Ehhh... I don't know if I like that much aluminum around my shifter.
I was sort of hoping to just replace the arm rest (with that 2-piece one) and replace the cupholder cover with a top-bottom slider

Re: Broke my center console cover (tomedkaz)

the 04 and 05+ consoles are comepletely different beasts. NONE of the parts fit. You would have to do a complete swap to get the (newer) different cupholder.

The aluminum looks 1000x better IMHO.

I would have to agree, especially since seeing your LED downlight on aluminum trim compared to mine without, it illuminates quite well. But I still like black because it sets the 04s different from the 05s+ apart. Plus the LED downlight looks good on the black as well. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

how is the cheapest dealer part the emergency brake handle?!?!?! lol

The leather handle just slides on then clicks into place. The only way to get the old one off is the cut the top of the leather then crack the plastic surround. I was expecting it to be some where above $100 and my uncle gave me the bill and it cost $20-22.

Re: Broke my center console cover (tomedkaz)

When I had my 01-04 Volvos, I removed the cover and we took off (ground down) the hinges.
Then I made some large rubber "feet" for the front of it (the back has a built in resting spot) glued a piece (a tab) of leather on ther front so you could easily lift it off.
This way you could let it rest as normal, but if you wanted to actually USE the cupholder I would just take off the lip and chuck it in the glovebox or on the rear seat.
This way your arm doesn't have to deal with the open lid and you can put larger cups in the area
