Hi, for an aftermarket armrest check out a British company called Armster. They do two models, all black or black with silver trim. They are available from them on eBay at £99. I have on ready to install in my UP! when it arrives. I've been told that it doesn't inhibit use of the handbrake but has to be raised to clip the seat belts in.

So,every time either the driver or the passenger (or the rear seat occupants in the 3 door) get in or out you have to lift the armrest.

Sounds like a pain in the a*$# to me.

The Armster armrest sits in between the two front seats so the drivers left and the front passengers right elbow share it. It can't possibly inhibit the access to the rear seats in the 3 door version. It's easier to raise it up to fasten the front seat belts. I don't know how you have linked it to the rear seat occupants at all, you'll have to explain that one to me.

Well, I'm thinking that anyone in the back of a 3 door has to get out the driver or the passenger side. In that case the front seat occupant(s) will need to remove their seatbelts and lift the armrest out the way.

I'm not putting anyone down for choosing the Armster, just stating my own opinion that it's not for me.
