Buffing is usually done on rims and those chrome coated pieces. Its either a chrome(Silver), matt black or gold dust that are buffed over the alloys,door handles, front grill etc...

The centre console that came on the last model of the 'old' zen can be bought from any Maruti showroom/service station for 243 rupees+ taxes . The mounting bracket will cost another 15 - 20 rupees.

Fitting charges would depend on where you get it done from.

Got the same console for my Zen a year ago. It even includes a rexine shrouding for the gear lever, which fits directly over the existing rubber shroud!!!

Sorry, don't have a camera here with me in Pune.

However, next time you see the newest model 'old' zen (OMZ??), just peep in, I think all the models (atleast the higher spec ones) came with this console as standard....

the old model console for zen which you want to buy will cost you at the most for Rs.150 - 250/- (depensing on the plastic quality) it will have cup holder, HU mounting space and a little space of about 4inch x 3inch space for keeping stuff.you may get it from any car accessories shop

Default M800 ICE - HU console

Hello,

I have a '99 Nov model 4 speed M800. During one of the Headunit installations (cassette player) done a decade ago, the space for the headunit in the centre console was cut crudely & headunit fit in.

Now the HU has conked out & the centre console has an empty space.

1) I'm not sure if a new CD/MP3 player would fit in since the dimensions look different (I tried with a sony unit). Are the dimensions supposed to be different?

2) Can I get the centre console or the plastic for the HU replaced? So that later I can get a MP3 player installed or even better, leave it covered.


Appreciate your feedback.

Thanks, AR
