It looks like the user you are quoting bought his knee pads from the newer 17+ models as the leatherette is smooth unlike the 13-16 dinosaur skin leatherette.

While I feel the door pads have enough padding, I am not a fan of the OEM inner console knee pads. It seems the padding is only in the middle of the unit, so where you rest your knee may still be a bit hard. I have the JPM Coachworks units and they have padding that is uniform across the entire part. Sweidit does the same thing. It is incredible for street and track driving.
it hasn't been an extreme priority. usually starts to irritate me 4-6 hours in to most drives, or about half an hour of serious driving...

don't know if you heard, but jpm is no longer an option, they went OEM, and no longer do custom orders.

Those look great and very professional! I was wondering if you know where I can get something similar for the bottom of the door panels? In have a disabled brother who often rides with me and he can't get out of the car without pushing the bottom of the door with his foot. He gets the door dirty and is getting it scratched. I tried to get him to take his shoe off and use his foot with a sock but he is not able to get his leg in a position to do that.
thanks

I have the Tein Flex Zs. If you do not mind a firmer ride they are great. The softer settings make the car feel a little sloppy and not too precise. The recommend settings or firmer make for some sharp handling though. You will feel every little imperfection in the road. Will require camber bolts and rear lower control arms to get fitment right. Just something to keep in mind for budgeting.

i'd really prefer the forum to become non-segregated. the fr-s water fountain tastes better.

That's for admin to decide. I don't have control over that.
