Install center arm-rest on 2014 Focus S sedan?

The base S model sedan does not come with a center console armrest. It looks like the attached pictures below. Just wondering if I can get the center arm-rest from the SE model installed on the S model? Anybody know if it fits and if the Ford dealership will install it for me?



If not, are there any 3rd party solutions that look elegant/natural...preferably one that doesn't require drilling holes or anything permanent of that nature?

Other Focus center consoles should swap in.

Sorry for the late return, I talked to the guy at the dealership and he said it probably wouldn't be too hard, however you would probably have to swap out the entire center console. I'm going to ask for a little more information to see if I can get the ball rolling on it. He said he couldn't see why you couldn't do it, it would just be aster of ordering the parts etc etc.

I did a little part searching myself and just the armrest itself can range around ~$200 depending on where you get it. The only one I would be really comfortable with would be the dealership though as far as getting the right color and all the correct swap out parts needed.

So that's my two cents. I'd love to do it but I'm guessing minimum cost with labor would be around the $500 range or more pretty easy.

You're really not looking hard enough bud, several here that would work for you but more universal.

http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_trks...at=0&_from=R40

Its from Canada, but for $131.39 (aprox) you can have it shipped to your door!

I saw those too, I'm going for the oem look. I don't like the black armrest, I'm looking for a color match. I've found take off parts on eBay as well but they're either black or leather.

I can understand wanting the OEM look. Im assuming you have a gray center console? If thats the case black wouldnt look too bad. as far as I know the SE console is only black and leather anyways. (mine is black) the console you listed will work however it will require more work. The Ti console (side by side cup holders) has the parking brake located further up the console next to the shifter. instead of next to the cup holders. It would work but you would need a new parking brake handle and possibly a different cable because of the location (not sure)

That one should be a direct swap, its a bit dirty but should clean up nicely.
