I purchased a 2009 LX about a month ago and have been tinkering around the edges with it ever since. I've purchased the storage armrest (should arrive this week) but would like some words of advice from someone who has installed one in an element that didn't already have an armrest. According to the instructions I'm going to have to cut the seat fabric, which makes me a little uneasy. Any words of support?
The contrast is not as bad inside the Element as it is on the pictures. We just finished a trip to and from the Oregon Coast, about 340 miles round trip. The armrest made the driving much more comfortable. However, I did have to put a folded towel on top of it, due to the lack of padding.I like it, but the black sure stands out against the grey.
