Armrest Interference

I have been looking at ZX3 5-speeds and the armrest interferes with the shifter. If it is up, my elbow hits it. If it is down, my forearm hits it making it a pain to shift. Has anyone had this trouble?

i don't get how people don't like the arm rest. I love the arm rest i lay my arm with it and shift with my wrest. Infact today i was driving and thinking about how people said they hated the arm rest so i put mine up. Well that was just horrible i had no place to put my arm =\

I agree with Solaris... I have no problem with the armrest either. It seems well suited to drive with it down and having to shift gears.

turn it backwards

i knew a guy who didn't like the armrest, he took his zx3 back to the dealer and they turned the armrest backwards?! he said he loves it now, even though it's tough to get stuff out of. it doesn't get in the way anymore though, i guess.

i leave mine up, i suppose i feel it on my arm every once in a while, but i don't have my seat tipped back all relaxed-style so that probably helps to keep it out of my way.
