lol, rick. which arm rest did you get. theres a nice one that the dealer carrys that mounts where that back cup holder type thing is. its a very easy install. and theres one that kinda bracket mounts to the seat rails or something. which im not in favor of. ive been wanting one but never really took the time to look for one.

ok i got it done.
man that clamping piece was a pain in the butt to put on.
other than that it is very secure now, doesnt wiggle or anything.

i actually love it. i so use to an armrest, i catch myself falling over to the right because i use to not have an armrest.

it is great i sit down like a king in my xb.lol

The one I bought goes in the rear cup holder, you just remove the screw put the arm rest in and use the included longer screw then you install the top storage compartment. This is it behind the e-brake handle. I dont have a better pic of it, but it is painted hot lava, and I put a light in to lightup the pocket near the e-brake handle.

the arm rest isnt low, your arms are just too short. but what do i know. i dont even have arms... or an armrest accordingly.

the paint match DOES look good!

hahah i read up a few posts and i said i hit 12000 miles on the way to work... now im at 22000+ and that was feb20th. so 11000 miles roughly in 3 months. phew thank godness for good mpg. thats what 200 miles a day will get ya.
