    Did it match up good? Or was it a lil off? I had the same console in my ef si and it was a lil off

    a little off i had to drill holes in the sides of the console where the cup holders are, get screws and some of those little collapsable washer things to hold the screw in, took like 2 hours overall and i didnt like the dc teg ashtray/cig lighter layout so im not gonna put it in im prob gonna get an aftermarket cig lighter and see if i can make it look oem. heh new jdm ashtray delete i guess. its worth it though it looks sick, i just gotta invest in a gsr shift boot with red lining and the matching center console cover with red stitching. :) oh and the gap between the oem stereo and the teg console is a v, none in the front and ending up about a 1 inch gap in the back, doesnt look too shabby.

    Yeah, a soda can is really the only thing that fits well in them, and maybe a small/medium fast food cup. Anything taller then a soda can is annoying though, because it will block the stereo...

    agreed that's why I got rid of mine.

    What I did was my buddy hooked me up with a console part out of another civic. Then I took my center console and cut it in half where the e brake handle is and took the half of the integra console (with the arm rest) and cut it to match up with the front half of the ef center console. I put 2 screws in each side to connect them. And voilà. Don't hate untill you see it. I'll post pics up in a bit.

    ill add more pics tomorrow along with how you do it, its generally simple and it looks clean. i know the teg cupholders suck but im trying to keep it clean and having a a/c vent clip on cupholder or makeshift duct tape is anything but. im stoked about the console it looks great and functionality is sufficient. picked up the whole console of CL for 50 bucks :thumbsup:

    ebay has em but theyre pricey. ive been meaning to take pics but its cold as balls and im waiting for my distributor to get here so i can get in my car without freezing lol. i paid 50 bucks, usually theyre 80 for both pieces of the console. check craigslist for integra part outs or you can find em on other forums like honda-tech,4th-gen-civic, or ef-honda. its surprisingly a very easy swap ill do the write up by the end of the week once i can stand getting in my car.

    94+. umm a drill with drill bits some sort off strong epoxy, screw driver, some collapsable washers, and some thin wood screws around 1.5" long. generally easy. not a perfect fit but definitely looks good. you drill two holes in between the holes on the side of the teg console and where the front of it is. line up the holes you drill with the holes in the oem metal rail of the hatch behind the console. youll see em when you remove the console
