@rishibravo:thank god you posted the pic.
looks good.if you want to match the leather on the armrest to the seat upholstery,it can be done on your armrest as well.the artificial wood frame on top can be removed and the leather can be changed as it is just clipped on to the armrest.

CARtik this armrest can be commissioned on any car. I got it from a shop in Noida. If I happen to go that side I will definitely ask him about your car

hi,the address of the shop is b-220A,sector-16,central auto market,noida.the phone number is 9312408793.get in touch with mahesh/salim.
the directions are:
when you come from delhi towards noida on the dnd,after paying the toll tax,go straight till you hit a crossing.you cant miss this crossing(also known as rajnigandha chowk) as you can see a huge rajnigandha bill board.take a left.you will also see the metro construction going on.again take the first left,and then immediate left again(sort of a uturn)..next right and you will see the shop.
i hope i have made it clear enough.
in summary,left from the crossing,first left,first left,first right.

and btw,this armrest can be installed in any car as long as it has space between the front two seats.

Hi Ketan,
Thank you for your interest in my product.
Sorry but we don't have anything for Fiat Palio yet.
If you send me a picture of your center console and its width we can have a look at other models. Manufacturers very often use the same console for different models.
Best regards,

I have almost decided to place an order for my Getz with this guy. just awaiting his manufacturer's confirmation, that his model would fit my car..

Anyone else interested, so that we could get a bulk discount..

cartik the armrest which I got was to be supported by two plates which are placed on either side of the handbrake lever. There were two configurations in which one could fix the plates to the armrest .I didnt like both the configs so I got a steel frame made ( L shaped with a T end ) by our local window grill maker . Now the T end has two holes and I have used the front seat bolts to fix this and the armrest sits on the other end.
In your case also you can do something like this so that you can save the cupholder space and mount the armrest on a frame which is fixed on the seat bolts. Getting a steel frame is a very cheap option. I got mine made for 150 bucks including the painting.
