    yeah so is the carbasically set up so that it's as simple as lifting up the back end of the centre console and screwing the thing down?

    how does it "fit" in the little rear pocket change bay?

    and how did you cut the plasitc to create the hole - do you have to be carefula dn be neat incase it looks like a pigs ear?!

    i used a "dremel", i was doing it really neat, but at the end of the day it all gets covered up, i had to keep cutting bits 2 make it fit, so its not tidy n e more lol.

    yup just lift the back console up, remove the 2 screws and 2 other 1's near the gear stick, 1on each side, ill post pics,

    how much did u pay 4 urs

    I had a armrest on my last car (Mk4 Golf) and it was excellent. My S3 doesn't have one and I constantly keep trying to rest my arm on the "imaginery armrest!" Once you have had one, as far as I am concerned you will really miss it if you don't have one! I'm going to get one fitted ASAP.
