Centre armrest
« on: October 06, 2015, 09:49:32 PM »
Do some models of the 3 have a sliding centre armrest?if so which ones?  also is it possible to get a tray for the inside of the armrest storage box?

The Gen 3 has an armrest but it doesn't slide - and tbh imho it's a bit too far back in it's fixed position to be comfortable. You can't get an ashtray to go inside the armrest (goodness knows why the hell you'd want one - it'll stink to high heaven) but you can get an insert ash-tray for the Coke-tin holders in front of the armrest behind the handbrake.

HTH.

My Venture has a sliding armrest, but doesn't have interval positioning. Slide forward to act as an arm rest, and slide back to access the latch to open the storage box.

Not sure about tray for the storage box. I hardly use it anyway. It's always in the arm rest position.

My Takuya has what sounds like the same one as Plastic91s venture. Mines filled with CDs but not seen a tray for them, might be a little inconvient with the aux in and power point living at the bottom of the cubby.
