DIY center console replacement?

Hi guys - i've been looking for a good 30 min now about how to take out your center console and replacing it - im thinking about getting that "Vorsteiner Center Console" to replace the OEM one (cause its old and dirty and busted) but im having a hard time finding any help on this project -

another thing if i could get some feed back on the "Vorsteiner Center Console" on the "Jlevi site" that would be great (because on the pic it looks like there is no room for a cup holder... )

um... i'm still not too sure what part haha but for the cupholder just put your hands on the sides and pull up, it will come out then after the cupholers come out the piece behind it (with the rubber black thing) you can just stick your hand under it and lift up

remove your shift boot, remove the trim surrounding it, and then you should see 2 screws. remove those and work your way from there.
