Try Shakespeares'

405 for a sportline console, no front seat. Screen and frame are extras. They are quite cavernous.

Renegades console is a Porters/BWM one. I think it may well be similar to a Tohatsu one. 490 + VAT.

The only thing I dont like is the near vertical rear face. A suitable mod for this is slowly taking place in my garage somewhere.

Personally I think the Parker double console as fitted to their 630 (another BWM DS21 clone) is a usefull bit of kit. If I wanted to change mine I would be talking to Andre.

I don't think that Andre would sell seperates, I've already spoken to him about home built Parker RIBs and he said No Can Do! In the nicest possible way of course.
