I want to upgrade to a newer center console because i hate the flip cover on the 04 cup holder. Will the XC70 center console fit?

Thoughts?

That would fit nicely, but I don't plan on dropping half a grand to upgrade. Thanks for looking out though.

IT fits, except you get an extra aluminum oh **** bar...
I was thinking that might be pretty cool. My wifey might feel it a necessary addition from time to time.

Yeah, I've thought about it as well, but what killed it was that you can't get the armrest to match the leather interior (Nordcap, Atacama, Gobi).

This one might work if you swap the arm rest and do away with the wood trim:

It should based on the lower link that DragoSR provided, you just need the matching transmission shift plate for the Spaceball.

Based on that picture, it looks like the part of the plate towards the cupholder is really wide. Its width encompasses both the cupholders and the parking brake lever. I'll take some measurements later today and check part numbers.

The bottom edge (closest to the cupholders is 5.5 inches). Can someone please check this measurement against a 05+ spaceball plate?

Vio. I actually have the newer 05+ console. I'll take pictures of it when I put it in, minus the correct shift plate.

I installed the XC70 console into the S60. Looks like the interior of an XC70. lol. I don't have anything other than the wood surround around my manual shifter. I still have to figure out what I'm going to do about that piece.

I do like the look a whole lot better than the 04 console, which looks cheap to me.

please excuse the leather condition. i've been out of the country for the greater part of the past 2 years, and the car hasn't been well kept, other than an occasional start.
