well i hav attached an armrest in between the front seats...u can go to any accessory shop and look for one.the armrest also has a storage space in it for ur small knick knacks.it gets attached to the floor of the car through a couple of screws and is very comfortable during long drives.it will cost u anywhere around 500-740 bucks and is also adjustable to the drivers height.i.e.,the height at which the drier wud rest his hand.one slight drawback it is a little bit difficult to pull the handbrake.....for normal traffic runs its good nuff but if ur the kinds to pull hanbrake turns..avoid.

Punka23, in my 2006-baleno-vxi i dont have a center armrest (in front) they have just given a small box with cover which is pretty much behind the normal hand rest position?

Is there a decent front seat center arm-rest available for baleno in bangalore?

Guys,

Can anyone tell me where I can get an armrest for the Octavia. I tried finding out at various accessory shops but everywhere I got the same reply " Skoda ka company mein milega". So I went and asked the dealers and got a quote for 6000 Rs.

I got custom one fitted from a local seat cover dealer its hard with foam and its color coded in art leather black and red. No functions of storing anything inside it though. At the dealer i saw ones with some portable fridges inside and whatnot, but they were in silver/black finish and didn't look durable enuff.
