I'm sure we've all seen them on ebay from holland, but i took the plunge last week and bidded on one, i was a little dubious as there a lot of fakers around, But i won it for 140 pounds, and it turned up this morning and i can confirm it is 100% genuine in genuine box and brand new. and all for 140 quid, i mean i paid 50 quid for just the gearknob. So my advice is get on ebay and track one down whilst theres still some available. And no i don't know how this guy is doign them at that price, but hey no questions no scary answers. he has bothe 5 piece and 3 piece.:D

I used a similar seller from Germany to get my R56 two piece CF dash. £100 delivered and totally genuine / brand new. Retail is £330+

No questions asked:smile:

Obvious question, but not mentioned in his auctions; he does have right hand drive ones, doesn't he?

Cool, thanks. My alloy patina has a scratch in it so at that price I may as well get the JCW one to match the exterior JCW CF parts I have

Mine arrived today and it was fitted in about 20 minutes. I haven't seen the car out of the garage since to get a look in the daylight, but it's quality CF (just like the other JCW exterior bits I have) and it certainly changed the look of the interior..

Argh! I'm soo-oo jealous!


How much did it come to for you in the end - free shipping? You're not in Australia are you?

There's an FAQ for the 5 piece dash. The 3 piece basically just unclips with a careful tug.

Has everyone thats got this set, bought the carbon downtubes as well?? Anyone got other downtubes fitted that look good with it, apart from the standard silver ones??

Personally I think that the downtubes would be overkill as you need some contrast. The steering wheel and gearknob/handbrake would finish it nicely.

If I had anything else in CF beyond the JCW stuff it would be on the doors.
