Default Center console options

What OE or OE looking options are there for the E36 center console?

I currently have the add on cup holders w/coin box but looking for something cleaner.

I ran across these custom cup holders:




Also, how do I remove the ash tray box from this:

I got rid of all that garbage and now mine looks like this. I never met a cup holder I liked.

I've got the modular center console (which I assumed all M3s had) and really love this 3D printed bin I got from BFC member JD8. Not sure if he's still making them or not.

That looks very clean, but personally I need the cup holders. What's the part# to the rear tray?

Too bad here isn't a Euro tray with cover to hide the cupholders like this:

Honestly my coffee sits better in the slot of my early non armrest console better than the cup holders

This is my favorite option. The arm rest is great for cruising around but gets in the way when on the track or just spirited driving. I also don't believe drinks belong in cars

What do you do with your ashtray? If you say smoke, in that beautiful car, I'm going to drive up to BC and beat you over the head with something.

Ashtrays are in there just because they are Carbon GT/LTW parts. If I smoked with these cloth seats the car would be garbage.
