Got A New Fiesta? List Of A Few Cheap Mod's That Make A Difference

44 posts in this topic

I've been looking at this very armrest on eBay. How are you getting on with it now that you've had it in the car for nearly a year? Any problems / rattles / wobbles / etc?

How easy was fitting? It looks like it bolts straight onto the top of the rear cup holder recess. Did you have to do much cutting / drilling / removing stuff to fit it?

Cheers

Obviously can't speak for iNath but I have the same one and personally haven't had any rattles etc with it. I doubt it would withstand the weight the Boomerang one claims it can but for a simple and cheap armrest its the best 50 odd quid I've spent on the car. The space between the front seats looks complete now and is a handy additional storage compartment.

I didn't drill mine so it can be removed without trace in the future. (It just sits in the rear bin with the use of the double sided sticky pads that come included - suprisely this is adequate).

Wow!! That sounds good. I was also looking at the Boomerang one - not for the load claims - but simply because it claims to be able to fit without drilling/damaging anything. If this one can effectively be stuck in place then that is a result as it's only half the price!

Good news! Cheers Paul.

No probs. I'll be interested to hear if iNath thinks the same....

Same as Paul, I'm still a happy chappy! I did drill mine, if I ever removed it there would just be 4 teeny tiny holes left in the bottom of the rear cup holder, doubt you'd ever notice it.

Coolio! Did you have to remove anything or do you just drill through from the top?

Ordered the armrest from Germany now. I think I'll try sticking it first and screw it if I dn't like it that way.

Cheers fellas!

Got my armrest today! Is there anything under the cupholder where you put the four small self tappers in or is it safe to just screw straight through?
