Anyone look into swapping out the old center console for the new one?

Fingers crossed this is possible..

Didn't find a thread on this yet. Thanks in advance!

I just picked up a 2021 M3P on 2/27 and I don't know if this has been said or not but there are no longer any USB's in the front console.

Yes it has been done. Someone posted retrofit instructions/costs on the forum last week. Use the search function.

Be very careful, the authorization unit that reads the key cards is within the console. A replacement costs a fortune because it contains that unit, and if you switch without having a tech reprogram it you'll be stranded. Daerik has a video on Youtube about such a replacement. Listen to that video carefully first.

Only found a thread where a guy said he paid ~$900 and "swapped the card reader".

If anyone has instructions, photos or experiences swapping the console, please post them here.

- What happens to USB ports?
- Is card reader physically swappable or must be reprogrammed?

cheers

That’s the one. He swapped in the new console and used the card reader from the old one.
