Delete kit..?

I'm sorry to be so ignorant, but what is this console "delete kit"??

Is this something you spend poop lot of money on, or is it a simple DIY?

I just wanna get rid of that stack of crap below my radio, and hopefully without purchasing some silly "kit". Btw, mine is a Box '98.

the kit is just the piece of carpeted plastic that covers the tunnel and the small piece of almost-square plastic that is in front of the shift boot.

so, you just remove the stack of crap and cover the opening with these two parts.

This is from another Boxster forum:

This is exactly what I was looking for -- a DIY thingee. Do anyone here happen to have the part number for this plastic trim piece?

Doug,

What is that cool gadget you have below your CD head unit? An ipod/MP3 player?

Thanks!

"very few people will ever notice"
unfortunately, you will be one of those people!!!!

imnsho, a DIY carpet job will look like, well, really bad. i'm all for DIY, but this trim piece is a must.

call suncoast or sunset and ask for the console delete kit and they'll give you the part numbers for your specific interior.
