    Leather Armrest, cloth seats.

    I would like to put an armrest in my car so i can be a bit more comfortable while driving and give me somewhere to store bits and pieces but i can only find a leather armrest and i have a cloth interior (98 astra sport, the black with little red bits on it) and im just wondering if anyone knows of a cloth armrest i can fit or if they have any pics of the leather armrest with this interior or similar.

    Thanks.

    can you not just find a similar interior to yours from a scrappy thats not in the best of nick, then cut out enough (good condition) material to get the armrest trimmed?

    or failing that, get a leather interior! £100-£150 on eBay if you shop around
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    9 Years, 7 Astras, 1 Zafira, No Regrets.

    the leather will match the faux-leather gear/handbrake gaitors anyway - or real leather ones if u have them so stop worryin about it and get one ordered.

    They look perfectly at home in a non leather clad interior. Hundreds of ppl on here have them and only a handful have full moo interiors

    I've got one and i've probably got the worst cloth interior ever made!!! It makes for a much more comfortable driving position.

    Pic time


    the gaiters I now have are alcantara jobbies from glen yale, and the armrest is still the best mod i made to the car
    Gaz

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    Never even thought about that! Think I have the proper leather steering wheel and gaiters so I think ill order one up from LMF along with a few other things.

    Thanks for the pic gaz, that doesn't look out of place at all, cheers.

    Cheers for the help.

    Glen did one for me. (Or should I say Mrs Yale did one for me). Looks the dogs danglies, fits perfect as with all the rest of his stuff.

    Bloody good mod to be done IMO.
    Its a jam thing
