Unless ford do an arm rest for the fiesta I don't think any after market one looks good at all.The stinking great girder on the Boomerang one is horrid.The others are just not the right colour for the fiesta trim.



Granted mines not the exact shade (it does look slighty better in the flesh), but after driving my dads armrest-less fiesta the other day for the first time the centre just seemed so empty and incomplete. If I ever ended up with another fiesta I'd definatly have to add an armrest to that too, perfect or not.

Mikester you are talking complete rubbish, as this is the only armrest that won't collapse and holds my weight easily with only a bit of flex, Yeah its going to flex if swing off it!!!

cheers

hardly talking rubbish am i when i said "it looks", i was observing not stating fact.


the fact it flexes is a bit of a negative don't you think? i'm not a fatty and not planning to take the mick but i wana be leaning on it when cruising on the motorway, if its gonna dip then its no good for mikey

...Mines for resting my arm on only... (lol)


I've noticed wen a couple of other people have drove my car theyve rested most of theyre weight on it to adjust their seating position or leaned on it when getting out and there was side movement (as I haven't fixed it permanently - and haven't needed to), but there was no down movement from what I noticed.
At the end of the day I only paid 50 quid for an item that's fit for purpose, makes me more comfortable when driving and can be removed without a trace for selling on the car.

Paul. (one happy customer). ;-)

I didn't like it at first but I see how that the silver parts match up with those one the steering wheel and door pulls. I would be interested but my car has the read leather and it wouldn't match.

Have you seen the pictures at the start of this thread Pumpkin steve, I have the red/plum cloth interior and I have the armrest which matches my interior and looks great. If interested I will be able to source you one a little cheaper.

thanks

Myself and my friend both got the Boomerang Armrest for our Fiesta's, 99 each including delivery from Amazon to Dublin.

I'm delighted with my purchase, it is at just the right height, and it is nice and sturdy, not a flimsy job. Transforms the seat into an armchair!

Easy install with good pictured instructions.

Highly recommended.

Hi All,
Fords do sell an armrest for the Mk7 Fiesta, I saw it advertised this week for a very good price of £70 plus £7 postage.
I called my local dealer today and they sell it at the full price of £100 inc vat, but the guy said they had never sold one. This is the link for the offer I found.

Hope this is of some help to somebody.
