This is a great DIY. And I thought I was the only one with armrest interference shifting problems. I always just drive with it up. I might do this one in the future.

Nice DIY. I am really getting tired of the uselessness that comes with having a CSL console. Might have to get this and put the CSL Console on the shelf as a display part lol.

The only thing im confused about it wether to get the cup holder insert or the tray insert. How useful are those cup holders as I do carry water or coffee with me almost every time.

I drive with both hands on the steering wheel... Also my elbow hits the armrest when I shift quickly, which is very annoying..

I already have the csl armrest installed. Using the car for dd for A while so thought I'd install the non csl armrest with a tray.
