I finally bought one of these units for my 72; the texture and color are an almost perfect match.

I've seen those, and debated about trying it. Does it seem like a quality piece?

So far, so good - in terms of quality. It is "driver-centric" which is nice, as it opens/flips toward the passenger seat. The only enhancement I'd recommend is some sort of tension strap (or just exercising care) when opening the compartment. It seems as though excessive and careless flipping of the compartment lid will eventually weaken the bracket and cause it to dismount. The only other thing that might be of concern to a potential buyer is the cup holder size; cans fit comfortably, as does a 32 oz soda cup from McDonald's - but don't expect to put anything much larger and have it be stable. (e.g. refillable coffee tumblers and such) - overall, I'd recommend it. In my case, there were three black swatches (sent by the seller at no cost to me) to choose from - "sierra" black worked best with the factory black interior.

they have different models from that company, some have the smaller can/bottle only cup holders and some have larger ones.

Excellent color choices. Made in the USA. Looks like they might have a match for gingerPinch. Will make the GTS a bit nicer to drive. Thanks for posting this cool product!
