Default Armrest for the TI

Hy!!!
I am new to this forum so I say Hello to everyone here.
Ok...got one problem. I don't know were to get an armrest for my ti. It's 1994 318ti and I really need the armrest on long trips. The only problem is that I am from Romania and I need to buy it from someone that can mail it to me. I will pay in advance via western union because I don't have a paypal acount and they are not available in my country.

First off, what is your interior color? I installed my armrest as my very first upgrade. I looked around and decided the best option was to buy a new one from the dealer. It was the smartest move, considering the other options. Be careful about using non ti model E36 armrests. I've heard they are not a perfect fit. Also, the small square area in the front of the tray is not on other E36 model armrests. Here are pictures of the one I bought from the dealer, it is made for our cars.

I tried to buy a black leather armrest from the dealer and they were sold out. Your best bet is the LeatherZ model - cheaper too. Two screw installation that took me 10 minutes - great product and nice people to work with.

Thats what i got i posted links above. When you buy it from Leatherz you get the center console with it.


I bought mine for $70 used from a member on bimmerforums.

I just ordered the armrest $130 (and a matching e-brake cover). I think I asked you about LeatherZ and ordered one right after - thanks
