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.

Details

Available in both Silver (shown) or Dark Grey (anthracite). Select your color choice and model from the drop-down menu.

This armrest kit is a factory option and makes a great addition to any MINI that missed it during production. Retrofitting requires replacing the center console (included in the price). 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 backward to allow access to the seat belt clip and rear cup holder. This is a fantastically designed and engineered product and is well worth the expense.

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.

The new center console which integrates into the main support of the armrest, the mounting plate which 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've been ordering parts from Outmotoring's site for a few years now after having some bad experiences from other Mini part sites. Although I have only had a few order errors, Outmotoring has corrected it quickly both times. If 'to err is human' than Outmotoring is 'more human than human'. Keep up the good work guys and I'll keep buying from you!

I have spent roughly 400-500 dollars with Outmotoring since the purchase of my 1st Gen MCS. I have only had one small issue with paypal not working to complete the order correctly, which was solved as soon as I emailed them. Great customer service, and excellent products at good prices. I will continue to shop with Outmotoring for anything I need for my MINI.

I got the lights. Thank you so much. You guys have restored the faith in
humanity to me by sending me the lights because it was so many months
after and it could have been argued that I should have checked the box
sooner and not after 7 months. I am really floored by your customer
service! You guys are awesome!

Thank you !!! :-)
