    If I remember correctly, the box mine came in said Made in Taiwain. I don't have a political stand against China made products, but quality wise I feel better when a product is made somewhere else.

    Like a car made in Thailand, right?

    I believe your new Federal tires are made in Taiwan, too!

    Between a car made in China and Thailand, I'd pick the latter any day

    Yes, the Federal tires are. Funny thing is there was a big label on them that says something like "Made for America quality" that tricked me into thinking they were made in US for a second. I have purchased several products made in Taiwan and been happy with the quality. To be fair, not all China made products have bad quality. They do have one of the most advanced technology and manufacturing equipment. It's usually the cheap products that have questionable quality, but at the same time what can you expect from something cheap

    Eggman,
    . . . . The armrest that I bought was recommended by Mark. It is large enough that I can rest my arm on the rest and still hold the steering wheel. It also has plenty of storage. I'll go out and take pictures of it when I go down for the mail in about 40 minutes or so. Yes, the factory armrest is quite a bit smaller and just as much money.
    . . . . Yes, I went to WB. They turned my fog lamps on for me and didn't charge me anything. They also installed the new strut and the Camber and Toe came back to where they were supposed to be. They didn't even have to adjust the toe. It no longer pulls and the steering wheel is now straight. My Mirage is back where it was before I hit the Raccoon. I did kill a chipmunk last night on my way home. I'm sad about that!
    GOD Bless and Thanks,
    rich!

    In the second picture you can see where a bottle of water or soda can be placed for the rear passenger. I carry my registration and insurance papers in the storage area in the third picture. I also put my checkbook and receipts in there when I am traveling. The larger area in the fourth picture is where I keep my medication bottles and change.
    GOD Bless and Thanks,
    rich!

    Exactly what I got. If you want more comfort order a "Elbow Friend" rest pad from Amazon. Fits perfectly on top with straps to grasp the lid so its snug too.

    Mine is also the same except the red stitching is black (red looks nice!). They all probably come from the same factory. Iím almost certain my box said Taiwan though...

    I guess I should add my post from the other thread here too, since this is where I first learned of there even being an armrest available. I have about 50ish miles driving with the "new" one and am really liking it so far. Way better aesthetics and the much needed additional height!

    Well, my new console/armrest came in yesterday! I installed it and like the way it looks, but am not 100% sure about it. Here is a couple pics of the "old" one and the new one.

    Old (I am not sure what's going on with the price, I think it was $40ish when I bought it) - https://www.ebay.com/itm/Fits-Mitsub...72.m2749.l2649



    New (this was a slightly different price also) - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/3280...63b13a224XCZP0

    Just installed mine made by Yinshi Manufacturering [sic]. Hope their quality is a bit better than their English.
