http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VW-Golf-Mk4-Bora-Centre-Arm-Rest-BLACK-CLOTH-GTI_W0QQitemZ280063985905QQihZ018QQcategoryZ9889QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

I`m
doing a lot of work on the interior over christmas and currently have
the seats and centre console out the car, and thought, now`s a good
time to fit an armrest. I was bidding on a genuine armrest over on ebay
but was out bidded in the last few seconds. Found the above but
not sure if it`s worth buying or not.

An advice would be good, or if you have a genuine armrest for sale, that would be even better.

Thanks in advance.

hi mate. my mate has just bought one of these and i fitted it for him a few weeks ago. all i can say is the leather doesnt match with the OEM leather and you really can feel the differance in quality of the mechinism. depending on how picky you are go for it. but i would have one now iv fitted this. it just feels week and tacky when moving it up and down if you get me. think its worth waiting for a genuine one.

Best place to pick up an oem armrest cheap, is your local scrap yard.

I picked a cloth black armrest to match my Recaros for ?15.

Just dont forget to take your tools with you!

Steer clear from the cheap/copies on ebay a mate got one and it was 'orrid!

After
reading through various older posts, I thought it would be best to pay
the extra and get a genuine armrest. Didn`t realise the brackets
broke on them. Really, by the time you`ve paid the ?40-50 for the
copy, and another ?25 for the repair kit it doesn`t work out to be that
much cheaper.
