    Astra H New Armrest

    Hi All. First post here - just joined, excellent site! Had MK1 GTE back in eighties and loved it - probably the best car I've ever owned (loved to maul those XR3i's!!). Then went off vauxhall - till I test drove and bought an 07 1.9CDTI SRI 150 a couple of months ago. Was amazed at the power and road holding!
    Anyway on to my post. When I got the car it didn't have a front armrest so looked in AOC forum and on net and saw Irmscher and Armster. Wasn't happy about them intruding on handbrake. Found this site http://www.woodcompany.com/opelpageastrah.htm (Wood Company in Italy) and ended up buying one from them. Shipped all the way from Italy for £80 all in. I reversed the fitting of the armrest and now there's no intrusion on hanbrake or gear lever. Excellent bit of kit and excellent quality too. Thoroughly recommended!
