To put it simply.......... the best thing in the mini to date!!!!

People are more than happy to spend £40+ on a cardboard centre console that gets in the way, rubs through and will soak up any moisture from the carpet and fall to pieces.

In my eyes for a solid (nearly half inch thick in places!!) well made quality piece of kit the price is right were it should be. Heck the finish is flawless better than the paint on my car!!!

I can honestly say you get alot more than what you pay for.


thank you glad your happy with it :D , thank you again haha

Hello, first time poster here. Have tried to include some photos with this reply.

Just wanted to add to the thread. I bought one of these from Liam this week and am very happy with it.

As you can see from my pics I haven't painted it yet. That's because I intend to get a new dashboard soon so I need to see what colour I get before I spray the cup holder accordingly.

It sits nicely between the seats. I have a '93 1275 auto. It holds my Maccies cup nicely!





thank you for posting some pis up Jo glad your happy with it :D

Looks really smart


thank you :D (thats all i seem to say :lol: )

Its fab!


ignore my pm then haha many thanks

Are they £45 ?


yep they are with postage and packing it would come to £52 this would be it finished in 2k primer ready to be painted.

ok got the dimensions they are 125mm wide at the widest point , 320mm long and 143mm high at the highest point hope this helps you determine if they will fit. the can of monster should fit fine ill check tomorrow for you if you want?
