Has anyone had heat in the center console? Mine seems to be kinda hot???
I have the same set up as you with the insulated tunnel plate and console/cupholders insulation strips and there is a big difference in the amount of heat getting into the console area and cabin. I'm guessing 40-50* lower in hotter weather. Top Flight Reproductions has the console and cupholder insulation pieces.Common complaint. No keeping an energy car or candy bar in the center console. Ideal is to pull up the carpet and console and add insulation like Bucwheat suggests. I have an insulated tunnel plate from elite engineering that helps defer the onset of the problem. I also have an insulating strip that fits in the console. Got it from one of the vendors on here, I think.
Put it up against a Grand sport or ZO6 and the Porsche don't have a chance.Hi guys appreciate the comments.... let me elaborate......as for dumping the Vette for a Porsche my Irish Temper had kicked in about the heat issue and yes I could afford to do the deal, ended up getting what I paid for the Vette in trade so I didn't lose any $......as for my comments about speed and handling of course straight line acceleration the Vette will win because of brute force but once the Porsche hits the corners it's no contest on which is a better car. A Carrera S will get up and go pretty darn fast without any concerns about keeping the car straight or having a heavy front end.....it's like everything else I buy, I try to purchase USA stuff but find myself constantly going the European route as in cars and motorcycles. For some reason their attention to build quality and OVERALL performance is just what I like. I can't begin to tell you how disappointing this whole ordeal has been and again as I said previously I'll be darned if I'm going to pay that kind of money and have to turn around and rip out the interior to add some additional insulation. It's just a matter of principal.
