    The cheapo Chinese arm rests that go for 30 bucks fall better to my elbow and still retain the rear cup holder. Plus the cushion extends both forward/back and it nudges in towards you, a pretty nice design for the money.

    Loving the new yellow colour! Welcome to the forums!

    It is, I didn't like the feel of the clutch and the auto has a lower final gear ratio at 65 I'm around 2200 rpm. so more mpgs i drive almost 50 miles one way to work every morning.

    Hopefully yours turns out that way. I have had both and the 5MT got 10-15 mpg better because I can drive it properly. CVT does whatever the hell it wants.

    I have a 36" inseam so I sit way back behind the B pillar. Additionally, people have regularly accused me of "lounging" while driving as I lay the seat pretty far back. Even with all that, my elbow barely catches on the front edge of the armrest. It's just way too tiny.

    Also, I'm a lazy arsehole and have only ever driven automatics, so I'm accustomed to holding the steering wheel with my right hand. It is physically impossible for me to have my right elbow on the armrest and my right hand on the wheel. The distance between the two is too large.

    I think the little fold-down armrest that is built into the seat they have in Europe/Canada is probably a better solution if you are trying to stay OEM. You get to keep the rear cupholder that way, as well
    Im 6'3 and the armrest works fine for me but I also sit like 3 miles away from the wheel. haha

    So far so good idk if its new for 2021 but with cruise control on it automatically engine breaks to save gas with the longer highway trips i have seen the trip average get up in the 50s and over all average around 42

    I agree completely here. They make cheep stick on gel pads that can be positioned to fit anywhere you want on the door to make it more comfy. Here's one set from Amazon: https://smile.amazon.com/Ankey-Leath...683557&sr=8-12
