Hi, I joined this site about 2 months ago after ordering my new car.
Well i finaly took delivery of it on Friday and am extreamly happy with it. However I was sad to see my old MK6 Zetec go though, after 4 years reliable service. The very rare additons of the tilt & slide sunroof and built-in 6 CD Auto changer will be greatly missed.

I have now gone for the high spec Titanium model in Panther Black, with the added extras of 16'' 7 Spoke alloy wheels, and Interior Pack 2 which includes leather Handbrake, Illuminated Gear knob and Illuminated scuff plates.

Having read several posts on here and getting various ideas, i spent several hours adding a few mods to my new car. Blue LED footwell bulbs, splicing an extention loom with bulb holders to provide rear footwell lighting. Boomerang XT Armrest, White LED license plate bulbs, and for novalty purposes, colour changing LEDs in the map reading bulb holders :)

Very nice car mate :) , How are you finding the arm rest? I'm thinking of getting one but I'm not too sure.

How is it to change gear? because it looks like it will be in the way?

I have one on my car and depending on the sorts of roads I'm on depends on whether I keep it up or not.

In town or country roads I keep it upright out of the way as I'm often going through the gears. As soon as I go on the motorway or am in traffic it comes down. You can change gear with it down, it really quite a relaxed position, but I can't have it down when I'm trying to have fun on national speed limit roads through the country :D

Thank you for the great comments guys, it means a lot to have your approval. :)

Im very happy with the armrest. I noticed on a couple of earlier posts that 1 or 2 people thought it was a little too high to be comfotable changing gear, but i myself feel it is a perfect height. You can still easily steer with your arm resting on it, and when my arm is fully resting flat, my hand is pretty well level with the top of the gear knob. The built in covered storage is also a welcome addition.
Like alexp999 said, you can easily lift it up if you are changing gear often, though i myself havnt felt the need to do so. Of course i have only had it a couple of days. Hope this helps you. ;)
