    was/am thinking of these as well, trouble is I can never remember which is the Armster one and which is the other one that LMF do...

    I want the one with less visible fixings, which one is that? and is it the better of the two?

    Armster one can lift up, doesn't look like the 'cheaper' one from LMF can. However the one from LMF looks like less fixings would be on display. Could do with fitted pictures of both

    ++EDIT++

    Pictures of both are in THIS thread

    so the irmy one slots into the square tray/cupholder with the screws inside it so they're not visible... and the armster screws to sides of the console? do I have that right?

    also, I understand the armster one lifts up to allow easier access to the h'brake, but do either of them open up so you can have storage inside them?

    also what colours do they come in?!

    Sounds about right Pete. Think they both open for storage.

    This is going to be one of my next purchases. Will most likely go for the Irmscher style one.

    Both come in black, but Irmscher have just released them in red and blue. LMF have both in stock on eBay,

    Think I'll see about getting it covered in alcantara from Mr Yale so it matches my handbrake and gear gaiters though

    EDIT - actually, I'm not going to say what I'm going for at this point in time, like always I'll just wait for something to turn up at the right price like everything else I seem to have bought/acquired for the car

    hence the whole project ethos (check my garage for details )

    rusty re-trimmed his in alcantara iirc (along with everything that ain't nailed down - and some things that are - in his interior)
    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
