I got the MK7 Zetec. Two things I noticed that I really would love is an arm rest for the front, and also a small place to keep coins. There is that little grooved hole area to put some coins but I'd rather they were hidden since it looks really cheap right now. Can you get an accessory (perhaps one that just fits into the cup holder thing, that actually stores coins in a small container?

Also, where can I get a decent arm rest from?

Have something to contribute?

Look to the right underside of the steering wheel. there is a small box which you can open, about the size to put coins in.

Does the Mk7 have the small lidded tray below the steering wheel, right hand side the same as the Mk 6

I thought it looked like a coin box but it was really hard to open so I didn't want to break it :( Stupid question but how is it meant to be opened? Does yours require a bit of force?

Also, one more question, you know when the ignition is off, then the lights go on the footwells. Does anyone know where I can buy bulbs (that omit different colours, such as red or blue) for that? I'd like to change the colour.

The glove box has 4 little inserts perfectly sized for pound coins

Hmm, I found it quite easy to open. I just pulled the handle and then opened it!

I bought an armrest from ebay and fitted it last week. It is really well finished and useful for storing things in instead of the unneccessary third cup holder! Heres some pics (coincidentally I had some coins in it when the pictures were taken!)

Right got the coin box on the right. I didn't notice the handle :D

Also, that arm rest looks great. Did you install it yourself? Is it easy? I am a total !Removed! when it comes to these things so if it's something I can do by myself, then your seller will be expecting another sale!

I installed it myself in about 15 mins. You drill three holes in the centre console and screw in three screws which were supplied with it.

The armrest looks great. Is the 14p all that you have left after buying it though? :)

Thanks for that, I had no idea there was a small storage box there. Mine opens fairly easily as well, as long as you lift the catch in the handle recess first.

Cheers

Love this looks great, any chance of getting the link from where you bought it? :) Also your leather upholstery and the red stitching looks really nice, jealous i am.

I also like to know where did you bought this. Looks very nice.
