A few different suppliers, not sure if they are the same manufacturer but they look ok in the pics.

Anyone got one fitted? If so, what's the quality 'feel' like? Easy to fit? etc

Look also at the armster branded one on the gbdriver website, as a lot of users on the zsoc website did a bulk-buy deal on these, and got a discount. There will be a thread of comments on that site. There is also a very cheap (£25) one on the gbdriver site, for universal (non-tailored) use. A heavily padded one from Italy, can be found on Ebay, at ~£85, which is about £7 dearer than the Armster.

Got my armrest two days ago. :D

(Ebay € ~60.-)

It is only attached with 3 small adhesive tapes, so it can be removed without leaving any drill holes B)

Also replaced those plastic dowels (which hold the central console) with something more stable (had to cut a thread first) ;)

Tyrefryer - THANKS!

I am really glad you've posted on here becasue my German is less than useful and even using a translation website i find it difficult to navigate the German fiesta-ka-forum.de!!!

This is the best one i've seen so far! Fabric not leather and attractive mounting base too!

For anyone interested in a group buy, there's this note at the bottom of that ebay advert (in red):

Note: For dealers and big customers we can make a good offer!

Achtung: Für Händler und Großkunden können wir ein gutes Angebot machen!

Actually - that's clever. Maintains the cup holder as well I see!

I could be tempted if the price is right.

This looks like it would hamper putting the handbrake on and off chums.
Am I right??
:unsure:

I would think so - but I'd expect to have to lift the armrest to get at the handbrake in any car the size of a Fiesta...

I would be tempted with joining a group buy and I haven't even got the car yet (Jan 4th).

So long as it can be removed without leaving any holes. A lack of a centre armrest nearly persuaded me not to go for a Fiesta. But only nearly.

We gathered 14 people for our group buy (and saved € 10.- each ;) )


One thing I have to mention: This armrest has acceptable quality, but could be made better,...

I had to grind off some sharp edges & the rear bolt-cover was too big.



Nonetheless I would buy it straightaway, because it has the best look of all armrests, I could find by now and of course the simple removal :D
