I'm sure most of you have seen the group discount thread
in the buy/sell section.
Got this unit delivered and installed today, below is my detailed review which is more relevant in general discussion.
: To say I am a particular
person would be a real understatement. If it's there, I can, and will find flaws in what most folks would consider "perfect

and arrived (Canada Post) within a week
~ Design, materials and function
- Overall good - 7.5/10
- about 8 minute, tools - Phillips screwdriver, thin marker
(after short test drive) - TBA...
My personal bottom line
at the top - Bang for the buck
, is it worth buying? - Yes!
Alright, let's go... More pics less clicks...
(yeah, that's a word)
1 armrest unit
1 generic instructions page (good for making an airplane)
4 screws with matching plastic caps
The unit looks good. That said - the top two parallel stitches are not exactly centered or even from the armrest's sides. You'll only notice it when looking at the unit from above. Once it's in the car it's barely noticeable.
Plastic base is overall well constructed. Could have been slightly thicker for a more rugged feel - however the handbrake console the unit installs on is most likely the same thickness and will be side "shifty" anyway.
As seen here, the front and back face of the plastic base is cut but not painted nor rounded. It makes for a bit of a rough edge and "aftermarket look" to the seam with the grey console.
