Center console options?

Is anyone out there making a different center console for the F10?


I would love to ditch the ash tray.



Or even if there is a functional, and tasteful looking part that sits in the ashtray and holds our cell phone or something.


Otherwise, it's a waste of space to me. I've been looking but so far nothing.

I use the ashtray for storing the garage door opener, it fits nicely in there jammed up against some black Velcro felt dots I stuck in there. It is very ergonomically placed when needing to open and close the garage doors.

Yea, I don't need that though.
So funny how little details can piss you off so bad.
Although it's not an ugly detail, it's just there...
Maybe if I can figure out some apparatus that would pinch my phone up against the arm rest, covering it. Hmm...

I bought a part (I can't remember the p/n or name) that replaces the cigarette holder with a small tray; I use it for change.

You could also take your existing console piece to a fabricator and have them blend-in the ashtray.
