What armrest...

I'm after an aftermarket armrest and came across two...

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Fiat-GRANDE-PUNTO-2005-Armster-Armrest-/200357655003?cmd=ViewItem&pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles _CarParts_SM&hash=item2ea63f31db

and

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/FIAT-PUNTO-GRANDE-2006-CENTER-ARMREST-/190404329348?cmd=ViewItem&pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles _CarParts_SM&hash=item2c54fb7f84

My decision is with the first one, as it looks like a better quality of build and comes with a sliding top.
If anyone has experience with them I'd like to know their opinions please.

Re: What armrest...

The armsta ones are good quality, the armrest is universal and you then buy a car specific base which is about 20 so keep an eye out for 2nd hand ones going cheap then get the base new!

Ocasionally a genuine grande punto armrest pops up for sale which I would gess is a better oem fit!

There is also the Isotta armrest, which again is a universal fit by having different base adapters.

I have this armrest, great looking unit.. although the storage compartment is a bit shallow.
