I also repelaced the armrest. It seems like this is a common problem with our model yes?

Hey everyone
Where is a good place to purchase a replacement?I know ebay and Amazon have replacements but who has one that matches the factory color the best? Alot of the reviews say color is off. Also has anyone ordered the complete arm rest that includes the bottom plastic too?
Any info is greatly appreciated

I bought a black leather armrest cover on Amazon (shipped from China). It was slightly too small but I was able to stretch it out to cover everything reasonably well and you wouldn't be able to tell unless you take a close look. It feels and looks way better than the vinyl ever did, even when it was brand new!

I used spray adhesive for the flat part on the top and then worked my way around with hot glue and laundry pins to stick around the edges. Once put back in place, everything fits great but the handle is a bit tight until it wears in (extra material around the handle causing it to not spring back as it usually does).

I ended up having an upholstery shop re-upholster mine in leather last week. Not cheap, but it turned out really nice!
