Cubby hole insert for a series two

Selling off one (or bits :o) of your XM collection, or perhaps searching for those elusive headlight washer covers? This is the place to do it.

There were three versions of series 2 wood over the production run.
The differences are enough that it is better not to mix them.

Hi Paul

94 series 2 cars had wood finish surface similar to series 1 cars.
95 on it changed to a matt plastic wood patterned finish.
98 on it changed to a darker gloss plastic wood patterned finish.
All these had single din flaps above the exposed radio unlike the Mk 1 double din radio flap.
Far more series 2 cars got black plastic flaps so there are less wood patterned bits out there to find.
Most are the 95 to 97 wood patterned versions.
Car production volume was very low from 98 on so plastic wood from these is very rare to find.
Quite a few Mk 2 1994 cars were made but apart from the radio half flap only exclusives got the other wood patterned bits.
They also used up a stock of 24V alloys on these exclusives.
Monte Carlos were not fitted to Mk 2 exclusives until the year after Mk 2 production started.
