Hi all, just helping fellow RHD owners out.

After searching for OEM and Vorsteiner items I came across a thread from Status Gruppe, sent them an email and they and advised they are 3 weeks away from selling a RHD item. I'll be picking one up after that.

It gets in the way at Motorkana's. Makes it hard to grab the handbrake easily when flipping the car around a corner cone.

I agree. I like my arm rest Ahah. So many people hate it. I find it comfortable to lean on.

I was thinking about getting one but its almost impractical, I need cup holders. I also think it looks out of place with just the carbon fibre console.

Very nice. I had a Mille Miglia on mine but swapped the OEM back on. Found the drone annoying but loved it when I had the boot in.

CSL console looks great! interested to see how well it fits. Didn't go 1x1 weave with the csl diffuser? That's the gruppe M exhaust? Yeah it's one of the loudest out there.

Just got emailed back, got told I can install it as is dont need any additional brackets etc.

Gruppe M yes! It drones like a mofo but 1st gear to redline sounds so exotic its addictive.

It's like a trumpet note kinda like ferrari! Shame it doesn't come out like that on videos.

Does the Dixis do the same? I'm guessing it's the titanium.

Yeah dixis is titanium too but one of the quieter titanium exhausts. It's actually not that loud. Drones just a bit.
