Doh! Thanks for the heads up on the orange stitching part number. Maybe swap it out when I can find one here in the states.

I ordered mine out of the dealer in Australia. They couldn't find it until I gave them the part number so you may be able to get it out of a dealer in the US if you give them the number. It was also cheaper than I could find elsewhere.

Just did the same. Much better install than what instructions called for.

I have a question.

To get the padding off, there are plastic inserts you have to remove to get to the screws.
How to pop those dam things out without breaking them?

Thanks for any help,

just noticed on Flebay

Was just looking on ebay and see the demand / desire for armrests have brought on some low price options. This genuine PVC leather model to your door for right at $115 and one seller states to ship and warranty from the US.
