Wanted: Ashtray

I know there are a lot of people who "upgrade" to the non-smoker option for the center console. I want to "downgrade" to the ashtray. I like my carwash coins out of sight.
Anyone have a basic black ashtray (insert and surround) for a 986 (2003) that they would like to sell?
Thanks,
Eric

Sorry, don't have one for sale....

However, if you put one in, make sure you also use either pill bottle or film cannister (remember those ) to house the change. The ashtray is not sealed and coins easily get dislodged from it. They end up in the center console where they either jamb up the shifter and/or get stuck on end and rattle around like crazy over every bump and in every turn. You can search the archives on "coin" or see this story...

Good luck in your search!

Have you called Sunset Imports in Oregon for pricing on a new one?

I'm betting it will not be more than $40 including shipping.
