    Armster H armrest fitted now

    Very prompt service yet again from LMF.

    But this armrest is very high!! Anyone else have that problem? I've had it folded back most of the time as it's very difficult to change gear otherwise.

    Not sure if the cheaper one is any lower?

    The one in my G was spot on just right, but I may have to conceed defeat and either raise my seat or take it out

    I found it to be the same Ian when I have drove H's with them fitted

    Nice addition but not as intergrated as you would hope. Nice to see you have started the mods already though

    I found exactly the same Ian. Spot on height for the mk 4 but in the mk 5 it sits far too high.

    I only use it when cruising on motorways etc, most of the time it doesnt get used!

    Cheers guys.

    Yeah the mods have started. Fitted chrome mirrors as well, pimp.

    Might leave it there for now. Not sure whether to paint the V grille.

    Spot on, same for me - handy storage box as the cabin lacks space for bits.

    What Astra have you got Ian?

    I am just in the process of painting my V grill at the moment, but still undecided on whether it will look good or not.

    Ian are you coming to Trax? The irmscher show car will have an Irmscher arm rest fitted if you wanted to try that on for size?

    I really like the painted grills I think the facelift H's are a bit too much bling with all that chrome on the front.
    Its a jam thing
