When I was shopping for an Element, I really fell in love with the SC center console. Though, I also fell in love with the EX interior colors and cloth. So, I bought a 2007 EX, ordered every single little part and screw of the center console, and installed it myself.

Below are some pics.

OoooohHHhh.... I like!!

1. What was the final bill on all parts involved?
2. Was the install fairly lengthy, or could it be done in a single day?

...and just outta curiousity (cuz I'm too lazy to research) does the SC console come in any other colors than dark grey/black?

Final bill was in the $550 range. I also bought the Element Service Manual (~$75), but that's not necessarily required. I did the whole thing over a 3 day period (not counting a long (2 months) delay for one of the parts). It definitely was more difficult than I was expecting. It could be done in one day perhaps... one very long day. ;] Though, I did it all myself, so help could have sped things up.

As far as colors are concerned. There are no choices. Everything is just as you see in the pics.

I am very pleased with it so far!

Below is a shot of the parking brake. I extended the SC parking brake rod to the equalizer bar and installed the brackets (beneath the cables themselves) slightly different than intended. Works great!

Looks good....i wasnt sure how it would work when you first mentioned it....but now that i see the set up .....
It's great to have a parking brake again! I took the original one out a couple months ago in preparation for the new one. But, as you know, it took much longer than I expected to get the final part to actually install it. I kept thinking that it was only a week or so away till I got everything, so I never put the original on back. :]

Nice job. This answers the "can this be done" question once and for all. The price will put a lot of people off, though.

I would love to do it......but for the cost of doing it id have to give up on my deck extention.

this is fantastic. how much room would you say is inside the console? used and unused, i bought my ELE for the use of space but i wish i had more enclosed storage like what i hope the console offers.

Man your E really ROCKS!!! Do you have any thoughts on painting the rest of your trim to match the piano black of the SC console? You said you have SC floor mats, are they just the SC floor mats or did you buy the SC carpet? Thanks, again great looking E:D :D Drew:)
