Yeah, I've seen the Euro's like that. They are set up the way Ford did the Contour (my previous car was a '98 Contour) with a smaller padded armrest on the seat.

On the other hand, with my Focus, I really like my armrest. Sure, it got in the way of reaching the e-brake when I first got the car, but I got used to it and don't notice that anymore. I just drive around with an elbow on the edge and for me it makes shifting a breeze like that.

All personal preference though, heh. My girlfriend can't stand the armrest on her or my car
