I'm trying to get GE00262 ( M343 OBL) (http://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/att...r-img_0013.jpg ) back to A1 condition and have found a couple of parts I need are listed as M5 specific, but not sure why or what the difference is. Hoping someone can shed some light.

Centre Console. This has Sat Nav mount screw holes near the glovebox.

P/N is 51162236760 (STORING PARTITION). But why is this different from a regular E34 ?

Boot / Trunk Floor Carpet. This is missing.

P/N is 51472234807 (Trunk mat). What makes this different ?

Any help, much appreciated.

Center console is different.
M5


Normal


Also trunk carpet is different material and different shape (also model year differensis).

Thanks very much. But that's now confused me even more :)

My RHD 3.8 6 Speed Looks like the bottom "normal" picture except it has the trays either side of the shift lever like your M5 picture. i.e. the centre console extends right up to the dash rather than ending below the aircon ??!!

I wonder if the late RHD (HC92 ?) used the standard part with the M5 insert and the REALOEM P/N is incorrect . BMW possibly ran out of bits ????

ok, so if I don't have leather (I have the suede / alcantara / 'M' Cloth) and just a plastic centre console, the difference is just the insert around the gear lever

(sorry if I'm being really stupid)

Stupid??? Hardly.

Apart from the special editions the basic differences inside appear to be the gear lever surround and the "bread bin" rear seat centre console arrangement.

As far as I can tell anyway.:)

Julian , I'm sure that I have a centre console in black for you .

The gear suround / storage tray is M5 specific , although yours is ok isn't it ?
