looks interesting and would like to see this fitted on a uk spec fiesta as the us console is different to the uk one

as soon as you have it installed let us see pics from various angles and a shot of putting the handbrake on to see what space you have to get your hand in

Just a quick update, the armrests are now available from: http://www.boomco.co...Euro-Spec).html

My Armrest is in transit from USA, and should take some pictures of it in my car soon.

thanks

Hi

I recieved the Armrest yesterday, so fitted it last night and it looks amazing. There is loads of room for access to the handbrake, both when up or down. Its very sturdy as I can lean on it and it hardly even flexes. The best bit is that you haven't got to make any modifications to the car and you can even take it off in the future and the car will look the same unlike the Armster.

Anyway here are some pictures:

With regard to price if we get enough people interested, we could sort a group buy out to lower the cost of one.

If you want to know some information don't hesitate to drop me a message.

Not something that I'd go for, but it seems to be well engineered and thought out and viewing the video will be doddle to fit.
Much more sturdy than some of the other ones that have been advertised. With the steel base plate bolted to the floor pan should ensure that if you lean on it, it will remain stable.You only get what you pay for.

You could use another upload system because for this one you have to wait to long :D

Looks like a good quality product.


Personally however I don't see what the fuss with the hand brake was all about. Looking at the side-on pics I think it would be better lower so that when your arm is on the arm rest you can slide your hand forward and the top of the gear stick be level with the top of the arm rest.

My 'cheap' arm rest from ebay is level with the top of my gear shifter which is perfect for changing gears comfortably ...(on the rare occasion I change manually :lol: ).


Just my thoughts.

How is the centre rear passenger doing for knee-room with this standing behind the console's rear bin/cup holder?
