Hi all,

As of last last week I'm a proud owner of a Smoke 2005 LE Armada with all the options except satelite radio. I love my ride but the only thing I don't like and my girlfriend agrees is this. Resting my arm on the center console is fairly uncomfortable. The surface is hard and rough. Do you guys agree? I could always put a smal pillow or something there but I want something more custom and integrated. Have any of you guys done anything? and if so, let me know and send pics if you have them. Thanks

Get yourself the center console lid from an Infiniti QX56. It's an exact match, and padded leather- costs around $65 at your dealer.

That's why I use the fold down armrest on the seat.

I'm very aware of the armrest but it's too close and my arm feels awkward. Having my arm extended out a bit would be far more comfortable. Thanks for your astute observation.

I too find the armrest not quite right. It's a bit too high for my tastes.

You'll love the QX center console lid!

I agree ! The armrest is too close and is not comfortable at all. I'm not a small guy and need more room to stretch out a bit . I'm getting the QX console pad for sure !

NYCARMADA, did your order it from the Infinti dealership and did the color match up with the rest of th interior? I went to the Infiniti dealership, but didn't talk to parts dept (they were closed) but car salesman said that Infinti has a different color leather than Nissan (almost a black color) while the Armada is more of a gray color. If you have pix, can you post them?

I got them both for around $155 or so. I could have gotten them online for cheaper but didn't feel like going through the hassle. To answer your question, yes it is a cup holder.. I'll take some better pics 2morrow.
