Center Console Tray

I know there's a lot of threads already on this, but I just did this upgrade and am pretty proud of it, so I thought I'd share a couple pics.

I just bought this car two weeks ago and couldn't be happier. This is my fourth bimmer and 2nd E39. The E39 is my favorite BMW by far!

I searched and found an earlier thread on this. I forget the part numbers, but through my local BMW dealer it was $154.80 for the kit with tax.

I see you're missing the door on that little 'storage' box as well.

Can the sliding door be replaced? My kid broke it last night. I tried to preserve it but it will not hold.

I like it a lot, but not willing to shed 160 bucks, maybe 80 is reasonable.

You may search around and find one that cheap, but make sure you buy the kit. I was trying at first to buy the individual pieces and the cost was closer to 200. The kit comes complete with every thing you need to install. Except for two M4 0.7 nuts for the hold down plate.
