I've been really tempted with the idea of a centre armrest for my Fiesta, has anyone done this to theirs and could you recommend any? Preferably one that's easy to install with minimum / no drilling and leather to match the seats

Thanks

I got the cheaper option from ebay - Posted Image

Do a search for previous centre armrest threads - others here have either mine, the armster, or the boomerang one.


I highly reccomend one. The area between the front seats looks complete once you get an armrest. :)


(edit - the black plastic of the armrest doesn't quite match the cars centre console colour, but I guess it matches my handbrake, shifter, and radio so meh. Plus the contrast isn't as bad in the flesh as it is on this pic).

I installed the Armster version and one of the best mods I could of done. Ford not installing them as standard was a real shame.

Armster is leather look but is best installed with a couple of self tapping screws.

I had the £50 eBay one mentioned in post #2 originally until it snapped.
On Friday I received & installed the Boomerang one and what a difference! It is so sturdy and definitely the best out there at the moment/. If you can afford the £99.95 price tag it's definitely the one to go for.

It does sound good the boomerang one, it says absolutely no drilling or cutting. How is it installed then?

I've seen one on amazon for 100 which is a genuine ford one which looks really nice. Has anyone got that one? I'm not a huge fan of the boomerang one as its got a huge girder at the back.

Remove center cup holders, remove a metal bracket (2 nuts), install new metal bracket, attach Boomerang to new bracket (4 nuts) and reinstall center cup holders (2 nuts) :)

Ask and ye shall receive ;) Couple of quality concerns I will email them about (screws not lining up/holes too small, and finish on a plastic edge) so will see what they say about that.

Installed and using handbrake:

Yes - there's a plastic rivet each side to remove, then you pull!

Lol; i've had my Armster since Nov 2011 and after following your link to the Armster website,i've only just found out that the top slides forward. I thought there was two design's. Feel like a right k**b, hahaha.

Where did you get yours from? looking at http://www.boomerang...fiesta/armrest/ it looks slightly different to the pics you posted.

Thanks

***Edit***
Never mind, i saw in their shop they have the EuroSpec one which is £105 so i just bought the one on ebay here http://cgi.ebay.co.u...5#ht_1466wt_840

Looking forward to it arriving as i have some time off next week i can fit it :-)

I am definately going to get one of these. Looking at the boomerang though, does the bracket not interfere with the backseat paasengers?

Cheers
