    Yaris arm rest, like I said before I like it for long trips, but take it out for around town.

    Right on, the setup I want in my Mirage interior; rubber mats, and a yaris armrest. I can see clearly how well the armrest fits in that back seat cupholder.

    You have to trim a nub off the bottom of the arm rest, then put a neoprene can cozy around it and push it in like a cork.
    The two little organizers on each side of the brake lever fit pretty nice and keep me from loosing my stuff under the seats all the time.

    What are those little organizers?

    That armrest does look better than the mirage one. Much longer for more surface area

    Hope this works. These should be the wedges between the brake handle and seat..
    not perfect but the best solution I could find.

    Does that keep the Yaris arm rest in place pretty well? My only concern with that setup is if it will move every time I lean on it a little bit?

    I bought a Mirage armrest almost 3 years ago...but have never gotten around to installing it.

    Like most stuff like this, that is kinda a opinion thingy.
    For me. 6 foot 170 lbs,kinda gentle with stuff.. it works fine, no complaints..
    that whole center console/ cup holder section is not the most ridiged place.. it's only as strong as what is supporting it..
    If you were worried about it rotating, you could maybe run a screw down threw the bottom or what I would probably do is open the back where you can get in to the emergency brake cable and see if you can run a screw threw the side to "lock" it so it cannot rotate..
    Just a thought..
    I like mine the way it is, easy to pop in or out..
    but it will only be as strong as the base supporting it..
    hope this helps some..
    think the mirage factory one might have a support that bolts to the floor pan of the car.. so that might be a more ridged ( but permanent) set up.

    That helps, thanks. Somebody has some pics of their Yaris armrest here.

    Yes...I think you are correct. That's why mine is still in the box.

    Top Fuel, you want that center arm rest thing to go away? LOL
    -Karl B. Relevant vehicle for here is a 2019 Mirage ES 5 speed hatchback. Lots of Toyotas and old Chryslers also.

    The mirage unit bolts in. I installed both pretty quickly.
