    Dang.... That seem like quite the effort to cut that out! Hopefully they issue you a refund!

    I calmed down and tore the damn thing apart. I can buy a used base for about $80. And I can get an OEM brushed metal cup holder insert for about $200 new. I have new leather for the lid. The rest can be painted. I’m hoping for a complete refund from LKQ.

    Did LKQ not give you a refund?

    I just called them, they got my email and pictures and agreed to refund me the total order including shipping, $249.95 total. I’m satisfied. When it’s all said and done it will be nicer than original.

    I got the driver side vent piece today. It’s in perfect condition and only cost me about $20. I also ordered another main center vent piece, the one my air gauge is in, because of the scratches in it. I know it will bother me, and I found one that doesn’t have the hole for the DIC switches so nobody bid on it, starting bid was $40. I messaged the seller and offered him $20 plus $10 shipping if the main part was in perfect condition. He sent me close up pics and it looked great. I plan on moving the DIC panel off the other one onto his, I can unmelted/ remelt the mount things on the back. So that was a score since those go for $100 or more used if you can even find one.

    cupholder 2.jpg This is the cup holder/ organizer I bought in the brushed metal. OEM and it was expensive as hell ($210) but since the console was free, why not. It will really update the look and match the rest of the dash. I know, I know, it has chrome buttons (why in the hell) but I will fix that.
