My Ride: 325i
Arm rest delete

Hey guys I have a 2002 325i that come from factory without the armrest. It has a sliding compartment with ash trey where the arm rest would be.

Today I saw ecs tuning sells arm rest delete kits and I was not aware that was a desirable mod. Your guys input on this?

I would like an armrest, and if anyone wants to get rid of theirs let's figure out a trade. Mine is black so that's what I'm looking for. I can put up some pictures later today.

Arm rest delete

I was thinking about it myself for my 330. I think it'd Improve the look and I don't use the armrest when I'm driving so what the heck.

Interior is gray so I won't be able to help you with that bit

Ah bummer! So close! If I dont get any interest for a black one I might be interested in painting if you felt the same.

Arm rest delete

I'll send you a PM if I can't save it, I'm trying to fix the leather up because the little cracks itch my arm and I avoid using it all together.

A new armrest from ECS is 320 I think (360?). So I hope someone here can help you with a black one ASAP so you don't have to pay that crazy price.

You have any pics? I have an M3 with the arm rest. It's black too.
Would your kit fit my M? I don't use my armrest at all.

I'll get some pictures for you tomorrow. I beleive it will fit no problem but probably wouldn't be a bad idea to find out for sure.
Its in good shape but has some signs of use. How's the arm rest? Tear free?
