Type R center console

I was on jdmland and ordered the Type R center console with shift boot. I figured it would fit right in but the entire center console is different between an 05 type s and the type r. do i have to order the whole thing or is there a way i can get this to fit?

You have to get the entire center console in order to make it work. The partial console with the shiftboot will not fit in the 02-04 center console. You'll have to shell out the 200 bones to get the jdm (yo) center console.

Does anyone know where I can get a full Type R center console? I just checked icbmotorsports and its a no go. They have it listed on the site but its out of stock. Any help appreciated.

Even with the full console? I was looking and kinda noticed that. I was thinking I could do some serious butchering of my stock console to make it fit but forget that. Can I just take the shift boot out of it now that I fucked myself and bought something I can't sue?

I knew about that gap and decided I'd stick with my stock console. Got a great deal on a center console piece with the shift boot, so I just took the shift boot out and installed it in my stock console. Easy install, looks great. Thread is here.

Same here. The shift boot with red stitching looks waaay better on my stock console too. I really have no need for the JDM fixed cup holders. I'd rather it not have holders at all. Seems ridiculous for honda to do such a thing in the first place; philisophically speaking, I mean the whole "less is more" thing. Honda always had a "performance over looks" and "form meets function" sorta thing so why would they put cupholders in a sports car/coupe? IMO it's pointless. At least with our domestic models, we can hide it with the really nice lid/tray!

Yup, pretty easy mod. The only tricky thing is getting that JDM shift boot to stay up. Different people have done different things. Check my DIY thread if you want one idea.
