2010 e83 ashtray delete

Good day all, im new to the bmw workd having purchased my new to me 2010 x3. Im waiting to take delivery as ive purchased from out of my province. Ive driven a few here locally but couldnt come to terms on one with the dealers. The one I purchased is very low kms for 2010. Meaning 15,683 km. Dont know if this will be a bad thing or will work out well in the long run. The color is metallic black with as I call basball glove interior. Xeon headlights, sunroof and buisness cd package. I had a realitive test drive the vehicle for me and other than a couple straches he says its very solid vehicle.

My question is id like to replace the ashtray with something as I dont smoke and it just seems like an after thought on bmw with what should we do with this space.

Ive found this on ebay and wondering if anyone has tried to graft this into their first gen x3.

I look forward to your comments. And yes ive done multiple searches on google and this forum but didnt get an exact hit I what I was looking for.

Thanks C._a__a2_

Did you end up purchasing/installing this? I wouldn't mind doing this myself.

No, I only just picked up the vehicle this past weekend and I'll be looking into it when time permits. I emailed the eBay seller to get dimensions to see if it will fit before purchasing. I haven't heard back as of yet. It all depends on how room is in behind the ashtray assembly once it's removed. I know most of the tray portion will be hidden and the cups will sit in an odd spot in front of the heater/stereo controls but better than what's there.

That's for an F25 not the E83.

Also looking for a solution to remove the ashtray in my 08 X3, if anyone has found a solution please share. Even if it's an exposed tray that could hold a phone is better than the ashtray, I'd settle for something like that.
