Well the first of what I ordered a few weeks ago has just arrived, The Armster Armrest I ordered from the UK arrived in super quick time – excellent delivery service from all the way in the UK. I can’t recommend this seller highly enough – www.teamtorquesteer.co.uk. The communication was excellent, the person I dealt with kept in contact and informed me of everything that was happening with the order. I was able to track the parcel all the way from the time it left the UK to the time it got delivered to me. I have no hesitation in going back to this company to buy more stuff in the future. Excitedly I opened the parcel – I was surprised to see how small it was, I imagined it to be bigger.
It took about 15 minutes to fit it onto the console of my car, I didn’t even need to drill holes, the self tapping screws supplied just dug into the plastic and I was able to fit the whole thing onto the car with just a screwdriver.
It covers the hand brake a little bit but I am still able to use the hand brake without having to move the armrest into the up position. It doesn’t really bother me at all and now I have somewhere to rest my arm.. lol. Also the extra storage space is a blessing as the Astra is not well known for it’s ample storage spaces up front. I just have to do something about a cup holder now. The build quality of the armrest is very good, the colour of the plastic is almost the same as the console and the black leather (actually I think it’s more like pleather) fits in well with the rest of the interior (Now I will have to look for leather seats for my car…. it never ends does it??). I am very happy with this purchase, hopefully the rest of the stuff I have ordered will arrive soon. Stay tuned..
