Anyone have a picture of a biscuit interior with a black leather center console?

I have been through the galleries here and looked at many pictures. Just trying to get an idea of what this will look like. Biscuit seats and doors, with an OEM black leather center console, shift and e-brake boots.

If someone has this combination or knows where to find a picture of this, could you post it here? I would love to see it.

Thanks!

This isn't quite what you are looking for but this car had a biscuit interior with a black carbon fiber center console...

2006 Lotus Elise

Also found this which isn't leather but close to the color contrast you'd expect:

Hope either of these helped a little

This is helpful, thanks guys. I'm trying to decide between an OEM black console or having a local trim shop try to match the biscuit.

Whichever you decide I'd love to see in person because I am thinking about doing something similar. Good luck with your decision!

I have a matte carbon console with biscuit -- not exactly black but might give you an idea. Sorry I can't find the picture so you'll have to watch the little video instead:

Thanks for sharing that...impressed that you switched out the console without removing the seats.

Where did you get the e-brake boot and how is it attached to the console? I have noticed that some seem to originate from inside the console, and others (like yours) look they have a piece that mounts to the exterior of the console, which I prefer.

I bought the e-brake boot from lotusgarage -- it's an OEM lotus part and cost $65. You should be able to get it from any dealer.

26 Gaiter, parking brake SKU:A120V0172J

In reality the mounting is nothing sophisticated but it works fine and has never come off. There is some 3M double sided tape on the underside of the boot that secures it to the console.

Do people normally remove the seats? That seems like a lot of extra work, although reaching up underneath the console to deal with the shift boot was a bit of a pain in the ass.
