HELP! removing AT center console

Hey guys im not sure if this is even possible because this is an Automatic, but I am curious whether or not I can remove the center console off a 128I, no idrive, automatic. I just wrapped my steering wheel trim and stuff so yea. All I found online were for Manuals so this is hard. If anyone had experience please help.

Yes, of course you can remove your center console. Same process as a Manual.


You need to remove all of the screws on the underside of the dash. You need to will the boot up on the gear lever and E brake and then there is a screw near the cupholder on the pass side, one near the ipod/usb connect and two behind the armwrest.


Please use this DIY and PM me if you have any questions.
