Cleaned the interior, luckily everything was fairly clean and I didn't have to remove the seats.

Well, first the kit has to get here

And my driver's side rear window just made a crunch at the very bottom of its travel. I guess it's regulator time.

I can't imagine driving my car without the armrest I retrofitted. Seems everyone with DRLs wants them off, and those without want them on.

Well yeah, that armrest gets in the way of hektic shifting.

I can tell you're granny shifting, not double-clutching like you should.

I think it depends on the person. I am between 6'2"-6'3" but with an abnormally long torso an short legs (my jeans are a 32 length). With my armrest on drives above 40 miles each way my right elbow would hurt. So would my shoulder. This was bc in order to get my elbow to sit on the arm rest I would have to lift my arm up and my shoulder would be constantly scrunched. Each person has a different preference. I couldn't be happier with my csl center console. I kept the armrest in my closet bc I know the next owner might like it.

Theres no need to double clutch in our cars. Are you serious? We have syncros that were engineerd by the germans. Double clutchin is for car built in the 40s. Your dumb

It's always up when I'm driving. I'm 6'2 and can't stand when it's down. Impedes my shifting just like the placement of drink holders, that's why I haz the euro tray too

I'm 5'6" so the arm rest is not really an issue.
Help me here: What is/are DRLs and where can I see the difference between the euro tray and arm rest?
