if you do put in an armrest it might be hard to turn the seat adjusters since the neck of the armrest will stand next to the knobs.

If you really want to add an arm rest. I can trade you mine for your arm rest-less center console. My gorilla arms can't shift to second, or forth without bashing into that thing. Seriously. Straight trade. PM me.

Forget the seat adjusters, if you put an armrest on your SVTF, your immediately going to see why the SVTF didn't come with an armrest everytime you shift into 2nd, 4th, and 6th when you bang your elbow on the armrest. Then again, not everybody grips their shiftknob in the same way.

well fellas it turns out that i will not be getting the focus svt. i had thought that insurance was going to total my Mercedes SL500 from a deer incident but they decided to fix it which is costing 9,000! I love my car, the power, the looks, etc. However, if it was totaled i just wanted a cheaper vehicle being the way the economy is. I took a hard hit this past year being in the mortgage industry. This is a great community and if things pick up i will buy one for a project!

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,
