    Ditched my Armster armrest...

    Dont get me wrong, the armster isnt the biggest selling item for LMF for no reason, or maybe im just a fussy customer , but I couldnt get to grips with it.

    Big, clumsy, an almost universal fit and a pain in the arse generally, saw the end of the armster in my GSi last night.

    I replaced it with a tried and tested Irmscher item, which now exposes the handbrake handle and looks neater imo.

    Ok, the armster could be swung up out of the way. The armster had a bigger capacity inside, and the armsters top padding slid back and forth to perfect comfort. Still I didnt like it.

    Cant beat the irmy item. I stand by that. For my fusyness, I have spent £105 on 2 armrests in the last month. Shocking.

    It was as new, so I got back a fair amount. The new owner should have it?

    The Irmy one is the best. I have a nice Irmy copy one for sale if anyone wants it before I chuck it on eBay.
