    Nice work, T3nnant. You did pretty much what I did, except I didn't take pics.

    Excellent post mate. Think this needs to be a sticky as is a popular mod.

    Well done fella.

    Sandra, your sticky policy is way better than your rugby predictions.

    I've done exactly the same and from the looks of it I've bought the same arm rest - I was very annoyed with it as it was squeaky as hell which made me get rid of it and buy another center console to get rid of the hole. I'd be interested to get another one however only if it's not making any noises, can anyone recommend me something?

    I know exactly what you mean sadly im not sure there is anything you can do. Im guessing its the lid so possibly have some sort of lip on the inside made of a soft material rubber

    Well today i got around to fitting my nice new leather armrest. Was a tad worried attacking the centre console with the dremmel but all worked out tickety boo & i am well chuffed with the end result.
    The excellent guide & pics on this thread made the fitting that bit easier.

    Cheers
