Removing the center console: 20 minutes (followed this thread: ) I had to improvise a bit as this DIY is for cars without ashtray, so I had to struggle with connectors. I also discovered 2 connectors behind the cover that's facing the rear seats, that were connected to nothing?!!

Cleaning the trims with alcohol and applying the vinyl took maybe 2-3 hours. It was my first time with vinyl so it took me quite a while to figure it out. The door handles were the most tricky part because of the curvature. The center console trim also required attention to make sure all the lines would line up perfectly.

Installing back the trims took 2 minutes and the center console, maybe 30 minutes. I had a bit of issue installing it back properly.

Looks awesome! Did mine too and was relatively easy. Center trim piece is a bit tricky.
