These are my pics from the install.....it's easy to get the center console out, just pry along the housing and pull out....it's just plastic clips holding it down. U have to take the shift housing off first though.
I would still love if anyone can help me out on the side vents, I can't get these damn things out.
I think a great addition to the DIY guides in the tech info section would be detailed instructions (with pics) on how to tap into various spots in the tC... like, I know there's a way to do it through the lighter, and another through the moonroof console. I mean, there are a few stranded guides throughout the forums, but none are really in-depth.
edit: Oh, the reason I mention this in this thread is because I have no idea how Repo1981 powered up the leds in his vents.
