I purchase the material on Amazon and had a profecianal leather shop installed it,they did use small staples .
It came out great, they also put extra padding, the OEM padding was so thin.

For the record, the redesigned 2010 armrest lid from Honda is a direct replacement. It is about $100 cheaper and hopefully will last better than the original part.

Why would you not choose the armrest that looks exactly like the OEM? Or better yet, get the real leather one for $29.99. The lack of center stitching looks goofy, IMHO.

Last month I bought the real leather one($29.99 plus free S&H), took it to the local car interior shop, they charged me $20 and had it done in less than an hour after I walked in and dropped it off. Pretty good deal, considering the place I bought the car from knocked off $100 from the price for the slight tear.

The real leather one on eBay is just that, real leather, unlike the OEM Honda """leather""". For the price, its silly to not replace it even if yours isn't torn. Same goes for the door armrests. The difference in feel is substantial.
Too bad they don't sell real leather for the entire seats on eBay in the same price range.

Because the oem one isn't that great. The one that renzo fabricated looks much better imo.
