Passenger Side Arm Rest

I'm a new owner and first time poster. Purchased an Orange EX AWD last night but won't be ready for pickup until Wednesday.

I've seen a passenger side arm rest for sale on ebay, but not through Honda.

Anyone have any experience purchasing/installing. Any recomendations?

The "passenger side" arm rest is simply the driver side arm rest turned upside down. Not too hard to do and there a couple of threads showing the install. I ended up putting the storage armrest in and both driver and passenger can use it.

Thanks for the tip. I ordered the larger arm rest from HandA. Will see if that one works or will try the upside-down trick.

Thanks!

Just picked my SOP up on 5/24. Will the passenger arm rest also fit if the driver's is replaced with the storage? Or is the storage armrest wide enough for both the driver & the passenger?

TIA!
I have the "double wide" and really like it. You won't have enough room for a passenger one, but then you won't need one as the "double wide" fits nicely between the two seats and offers storage. The best part is that it is easily removed if need be.
Does anyone have any pics of either a passenger side armrest installed or the "double wide" armrest installed on the drivers seat? I'm really curious to see what these both look like.
I read something about this in another post: Somebody is trying to get the regular driver armrest from a Japanese guy, cause the right seat IS their driver seat. Sounds to me like that would be the best install since it's made to install on that side. Wouldn't the US driver's side armrest rotate down when installed on the passenger side?
I don't see any way that it wouldn't -- the hole for the bolts didn't move. :D

OTOH, the regular arm-reset, upside, wouldn't be bad, would it? Obviously the storage arm-rest upside would be a bit of a problem!
