Comfort or no comfort?
CSL carbon fiber center console replicas are readily available on the market, yet these sacrifice some creature comforts.
Father time is undefeated and old joints need some support - or you need the storage space, but we still want the carbon fiber look.
Whichever it is, there might be a solution.
As I've been collaborating with René to extend the E46 M3 catalog, I'm looking to offer an alternative to CSL center consoles that is more user friendly.
Made from new Genuine BMW core with Factory Matching CSL 1x1
René hand manufactures these kits using brand new, Genuine BMW center consoles from BMW in Germany to ensure perfect fitment. No core exchanged is required.
He uses the same manufacturing process as BMW M GmbH did on the CSL carbon fiber interior trim components: pre-preg & autoclaved overlays on the plastic OEM trims.
The pre-preg and autoclaved manufacturing process, commonly called dry carbon, allows for a very thin application of carbon fiber.
It provides a much more consistant carbon fiber pattern. He pays close attention to the optical direction of the weave to match the OEM pattern.
The center console on the pictures is a 1x1 weave with gloss clear.
