I purchased one of the center console CTS armrests from Lindsey and now have the factory armrest that will probably end up collecting dust in my garage. Are they worth anything? Or do I toss it and save myself from looking at it for years thinking I will do something with it one day....

If ya decide to toss it LMK as mine looks like someone used it as a seat. It's cracked on the bottom.

what is your opinion on the armrest? I would think the crusing/steering with right hand is much easier not to mention the closed storage space

I actually just got it installed and have not had a chance to drive the car with it yet since it has been raining for the last 3 days here. The stock one was pretty uncomfortable IMO, so it can only be an improvement

CTS armrest--one of the best mods I've done. :cool:

In the top ten for me as well.

If anyone had the CTS console for even ten minutes, they'd throw their V console in the trash. Excellent mod!

Good for about 2 hp give or take, too. :D

Keep the armrest and box it away. When you sell it or trade it in, put the original back and sell the CTS version for %50 off...

Put it up for sell in the CTS forum. Im sure some poser with a V bumper will be all over the "upgrade".

I like the small console myself, keeps me from keeping a bunch of cluttering crap in my car.

I'm 6.1, I don't think that's real tall, but the stock arm rest is at a good height for my lanky arms.

Granted I didn't actually drive the car, but I sat in a CTS just to check out the armrest and didn't think it was that much better. Must have to actually drive it I guess.

I'm 6'3" and added the CTS armrest 2 weeks ago (Thanks, Luke!). I love the difference....no pile of insurance cards, registration, nav booklet, tire gauge, detail brush (OK...I'm anal about dust on the dash) under the little armrest in the small cubby. Now all my stuff like that is in the armrest console and not visible.

I also think the height of the CTS armrest is superior to the V armrest....very comfortable to rest my arm while shifting or riding.
