For my first purchase with Outmotoring I bought a set of Gen 2 Clear Side Marker Lights and the product, the company, and their customer service is excellent! I will definitely use Outmotoring again for all my future MINI product needs!

After years of waiting for MINI to develop a armrest, they've followed through with a fantastic product. A factory option yet it's a great addition to any MINI that missed it at the factory. Retrofitting requires replacing the center console (included in the price for Gen 1 MINI's. See note below for Gen 2 MINI's). The top pad of the Armrest is a sliding door that holds smaller items like cell phones and keys. A nice feature is that the whole armrest pivots back to allow access to seat belt clip and rear cup holder.

This is great designed and engineered product and is well worth the expense. In fact it's shocking that they got it down to the price they have it at considering the list of parts that are included in the kit. Very straightforward install should take about 1 hour or so with basic tools. Looks like a lot of work but it's actually pretty intuitive and anyone with basic hand tools and some common sense should be able to install it. Available in both charcoal grey/anthracite or silver to match your MINI's dash color. Image shows silver but is available in Black or Antrhacite/ Charcoal grey. The new center console that integrates into the main support of the armrest, the mounting plate that goes UNDER the center console, mounting hardware and arm pad are dark grey (to match the interior of the MINI) and are included in the kit price.

This a fantastic armrest. If it's too pricey or just too plain vanilla for ya, please check out the Out Motoring ARC Armrest.

    I got this for my Wife's new to her 2007 S. This appeared to be the nicest Armrest out there. The install was not difficult and the finished look is very nice. The tilt feature is great as it makes access to the hand break easier and you can get it out of the way for serious driving. The sliding cover is a nice touch, but it doesn't open all the way so small things can be hard to get at in the back. Note that the instructions don't include taking the old base plate out, but it is a simple task as the console is held down by three screws; one in each cup holder, including the rear one.

    I would recommend this product.
