Centre Console and Gear Console: 159/Brera: Same?

Looking at getting a new centre console and matching gear section for my 159.
I have the poverty spec Tourismo (great name though!!) and the console is plastic.
The gear stick section of trim has 4 cracks, each coming out of the corner sections, the main console has a few scratches and a few nasty deeper scratches caused by me taking the stereo out last week! Doh.

I have had a few quotes for the upgraded metal versions, in silver to match the door trim.

I have found one from a Brera that looks good for the money.

Do the two cars have the same fittings exactly?

I can see a photo of the one I want and it looks right, but trying to check that the two are totally the same.

Any thoughts?

Have attached a picture of the one I want!

also beware there are like a million colors/types of aluminum on those trims and i think it would look like crap having the center and the gear ones in different trims.

That's funny. I had something like that on my 159 gear stick section, too! But that were scratches, not cracks. If you look closely, you might also find one scratch/crack behind everyone of the 3 buttons behind the gear stick. These scratches must have been made on purpose but are so irregular, that they can't be made by a machine. I guess there must be an idiot in the factory, who - for whatever reason - makes that after taking the pieces out of their moulds or so.
(I had that piece replaced by warranty.)
