    Doesnt have to be that colour, just a standard one.

    Also whats the part number and how much will it set me back?

    flip! are they easy to fit though? ideally i want one with the red stitching like the rest of the interior, do you know if the seat one is like that?

    As far as i know there is no red stitching option. To fit you need to remove the coin tray infront of the rear ashtray with a dremel and bolt it in there. There is a guide on here somewhere

    cheers just seen the guides, looks straightforward, although i didnt realise it would restrict access to the handbrake! may need to reconsider!

    I have one was on the car when i got it, pain in the rear it is, hence it is always in the vertical position.

    It doesn't that much.... I don't have mine in the 90 degree position, but the second (lower) position and handbrake access is fine.....

    The armrest does kind of get in the way, but you get used to it, and then you think it's a really good design. You can change gear and pull on the handbrake without lifting your arm. Makes you really lazy ;)
