Default Center Arm rest for Aveo?

Anybody tried a center Arm rest in the front seats for Aveo?
I beleive the handbrake would be a hinderance to make such one, But I like to know if I can make one.

Advise me please.

I saw one for Aveo in ebay Germany.

Mittelarmlehne Armlehne Chevrolet Kalos / Aveo 05 - 08 bei eBay.de: Innenausstattung (endet 10.08.08 20:53:57 MESZ)

As you rightly said, I guess handling the handbrake will not be easy after installing this.

Default Arm rest

Hi,

Is there anyway I can fit a Front driver+passenger Arm rest in my Aveo?
Is that possible to do?

Thanks,

You can try something like this. (Pictures from 2007 Chevrolet Aveo armrest)

Also, try to check this US version. It has Driver armrest.
Chevrolet | 2008 Aveo - Color Options & Build Your Own Chevy Aveo

But I feel it may hinder while using the gear, so should be carefully designed with less length.

These ones would hinder gear shifts as shown in the above pic, its an automatic so no issues there but shifting in traffic on a MT would be next to impossible but it is foldable so can be used on highway/long drives.
If you dont manage to find one off the shelf then try the arm rest off a Tata Safari or Scorpio and get a local mechanic to fit it. This is India, i am sure some Juggard is possible.

Check simillar threads. I am sure you would find a solution that would fit your needs and wont hinder handbrake operation too.
