    Hey Mirageman38. When your new arm rests arrive, could you please post the name it says on the box?

    I have been meaning to get a comfy armrest for my base model Mirage, but looking at this thread I don't want a pleather aftermarket armrest that goes funky after 20,000 miles.

    Right on, thanks Mirageman38. This will help me out lots. I'm driving a few hours in the USA this Friday, and I wish I had an armrest, and cruise control. Ah well, I have driven through Michigan in worse wheels than my Mirage!

    Thanks Miageman38 let me know how it goes setting up your new arm rest.

    I finally got the armrest today. Almost didn't get it as my building security lied and said it wasn't here and was to lazy to even look

    As you can see it is mainly composed of the base and the top part. It also comes with a pack of like 10 screws (even though you only need 4?) to screw the two parts of the base together. After you screw it on there is no real way to access the space so it just becomes a void.

    The back cup holder part slides around for different drink sizes and doubles as an ash tray (popular feature in China I guess). The bottom states this is for an Attrage and a bunch of Chinese stuff I can't read. The inside has a little piece of carpet fuzz that comes out. The PU leader top slides back and forth.

    So far it doesn't seem high enough to work well as an armrest at least with the seat as high as I put it. Coming from an SUV I like being up high so I am going to need to get an armrest cushion to make this work better.

    Browsing through alibaba reveals the Attrage must be pretty popular in China as there is a wide selections of parts. A few different types of armrest and drop in touchscreen android media radios are available fairly cheap. Oh and if you want to buy these armrests in bulk they can be had for as low as $10 if you buy 500+

    I am going to stay away from the $5-10 PU leather Cushions and upgrade to the deluxe $13 non-pu leather cusion. I will post pics of it all together when it comes in.

    Apparently you can even buy a front bumper for $400. This car must be really popular with all these parts they seem to have...
