    Hi Team,

    I am also looking out for an armrest and a bit confused as to whether I should go for the Linea's one or order the universal one from e-bay.
    The only flip side of going for Linea's armrest is that; it will be in beige and wont match with my car's upholstery.
    Another question, my friend has a Palio. Any idea if the universal armrest will work with the Palio?

    Its not a problem to get it covered. No need to remove that beige color cover. Just give a visit to a pro installer and he'll cover it up without removing anything(like padding or beige cover).
    It won't take more than 1/2 hour for him if he's a pro. Don't forget to get the cover(fabric or PU) of your choice.

    Guys for punto or linea do not go for aftermarket armrest. Nothing is better then OE armrest, you can lay your whole weight on this OE armrest. And looks best on our rides.

    The OE handrest might be better than the EBay one, but then I think there would be a long waiting time, as it has to come from the factory once we place the order, and going by the posts on this thread looks like the installation is a bit complicated. Another problem for me is that the beige colour wont match the upholstery.
    Coming to the one available on EBay, is it the one labelled as "Universal Big Car Armrest Centre Console Hand Rest Black For Fiat Punto". Could someone, who has ordered this from Ebay, confirm please? I ask as all the EBay links given on this thread are broken so I just want to make sure I am ordering the correct one.

    Cheers,

    I had installed the so called universal arm rest.. cost me 999 and was pretty happy with it.. but one thing i was not happy was quality of arm rest holder..
    one i accidently put some pressure on the arm rest and i broke.. fixed it with some glue..
    a week back a friend of mine..got in and he put his weight on the armrest while exit.. and.. end of story..

    although u save some money on these items.. on long run.. we end up paying more.

    i'm thinking of getting the Linea arm rest....

    Thanks for sharing your experience. I think I will also go with the Linea's arm rest in that case.
