yes its silver paint,the console was removed and then painted and reattached.
@rishibravo:hi,you can put in the palio.infact it can be installed in any car.

Does the armrest foul with the handbrake lever?

This is the same question I have too. From the looks of it, the arm rest appears cool the way it is and is a steal at Rs 500 if it is of good quality. I would like to get one for my esteem too.

the arm rest is mounted on two brackets.the armrest is placed above the handbrake.you can easily reach the handbrake...though not as convenient as without the armrest.
if you are into handbrake turns,thats a completely different issue.

So, does that mean, one would have to open the top cover of the arm rest to access the hand brake (assuming that the space below the arm rest doubles up as a storage compartment).

It looks so wonderful and I've been longing for one on my Ikon. Where will it be available in Chennai? It got a name?
