Default Armrest from M3

I wanna install it in my 1998 318ti with leather seats. I do not have the sport package or the M3 option. If I put the insert between the seats, and remove my cup holder/parking brake insert, can I make it work?




Thanks
Eric

i tried using one from a 95 M3 but had no luck it won't fit good when you match up the cup holder/parking brake insert from the M3 to the center/shifter console on the ti. maybe someone else has had better luck.

Default Help

I did a search on the armrest and read alot of interesting comments (ie. cupholders, and changing armrest console). I have bought this armrest from a '95 m3. I know most of you that have an armrest was bought from a dealer and made for the ti (I'm wishing I'd done the same now). But...I am hoping someone will tell me that I can make this work. Thanks.

The arm rest itself is the same for all e36 (bolt pattern is the same). The console is different though; non-ti console has a different shape in the front so it won't align 100% properly with ti dash but it does "fit" ("fit" as in it can be installed and be functional with minor cosmetic problems).

I am also not sure if 2/4 door versions of the arm rest console have the same shape.
