Direct swap for your stock armrest. $100 and I'll split shipping with you.

Other than to be different, is there a reason for this on ours?

Some obvious points would be for a cleaner look, weight savings, and an easy accessible tray. But of the main reasons I did it personally is my passengers would put their weight on the arm rest when positioning themselves in the seat (common habit for any vehicle) and the lower console is pretty brittle. I didn't want them damaging it.

Well, you have a nice, new part instead of an old, brittle, broken, wobbly one... it might help clean up the interior a bit. Personally, I like having somewhere to rest my elbows on long drives; but if that doesn't matter to you, then here you go.

I thought about that but I dont remember looking for the armrest even on my 200 mile round trip to the track.

That is true, I am very careful to not push on the armrest when getting stuff from the back seat precisely for that reason. But I do like my armrest, especially with the cupholder on top of it.
