I'd like to install a center console from a 03 beetle into my '98 beetle. I currently have an '03 & a '98of my own, & found a center console for an '03 on ebay. I like the swinging cup holders on the '03. Will the '03 console be a direct fit onto the '98? Has anyone ever done it? I welcome any tips or advice. Thanks.

I've heard it is. It's the '06 and up that takes some finagling with the e-brake handle (although I've heard that can be a direct swap too if you get the newer e-brake handle too). I've not done a swap so I don't know from personal experience. I'm sure plenty will chime in that have done it though since its a pretty common swap.

I have an 06 console in my 05 beetle. All you need to do is enlarge the holes in the emergency brake handle and it will tighten down at a 10 degree angle to fit.
