number1187svt When I had mine, I never thought twice about having an armrest... I agree with those who said it wasn't put there for a reason. However, I do understand the idea of wanting one.
Even still, Looking back, still wouldn't put one there. Everyone I knew with a ZX3 used to tilt them up and out of the way.

The console is out of a 2005 Focus that I found at the scrap yard and I have no issues with the knobs hitting anything when I slide my seat.

The armrest doesn't have a lot of storage space but for the little bit it does have it's really convenient, I usually keep some coupons, my Bluetooth headset and my aux cable when I'm not using them in it.

josh6025 Since I put in the armrest I haven't had any issues with shifting into any gear and it makes driving that much more comfortable.

As for adjusting the seat back it's a bit harder but not impossible. Although once your seat is set and as long as you're the only driver you won't be using the back adjustment that much.

josh6025 I put an armrest in my 04SVT as I do a lot of cruising so I needed a place for arm. I'll post some pics of it later tonight.

I added a console with the armrest and can reach both adjusters just fine, it is not difficult or awkward at all. Also, I have a couple of consoles with armrests if anyone is interested just PM me.
Thanks,
