Re: Aftermarket armrest for i10

The after market installation of arm rest is possible and i think its easier to find shops for these in Bangalore.
I think regarding the shops, our Bangalore members will help you out.

Yes, it’s possible and there are different choices available. I too wanted to get one for Maruti 800 but couldn’t as there’s isn’t enough room between the seats.

Re: Aftermarket armrest for i10

Hmmm yes this is one thing i need very badly in my Verna , kinda used to driving with armrest in Safari and Aria! Verna has armrests in top-end model , so i think in my car fitting it wont be an issue.


Can anybody tell how much would it cost? Also what is the difference between the cushioned and normal ones? Are the factory fitted ones cushioned?

They range from one thousand rupess onwards. The ones I came across were black / grey only.

Also what is the difference between the cushioned and normal ones? Are the factory fitted ones cushioned?
The cushioned ones have foam / fabric on the surface, where as in non-cushioned ones, it is simple plastic.

The new gen i10's have a mix of black and beige interiors. Is the armrest shown above available in accessory shop(like carnation etc) or does it need to be purchased online?

These are available on almost all reputed car accessory outlets. But I’m not confirmed about Carnation because they deal with the brands they are associated with.

Re: Aftermarket armrest for i10

Finally got hold of this. Any good shop in Pune who stores good armrests and which does fit easily without any drill or screwing?

I do not think you will be able to install it without screws because how it would hold it position ? I am also looking for an arm rest for my Estilo. However, I have not inquired about it so far. Anyone from Delhi installed aftermarket armrest. Please confirm price and location.[:)]

I doubt if it would be possible.

Just check out Karol Bagh Market. There are many accessories shops. I’m not updated about the pricing since I last inquired about them a few years ago.

@350Z : the armrest wont interfere with the handbrakes right?
Depends upon the location of handbrake. Here’s how it looks like after installation. You can also choose a different type of armrest which has space for handbrake.
