So i got a new 2017 Versa sedan S-Plus, which is virtually identical to the older 2015-2016 models.
I love the Versa Sedan but, one thing that always bothered me was no armrest. So after getting my new one the first thing i looked into was aftermarket solutions. The first one i tried was this "universal" armrest:
^^ Do NOT buy this one. This is actually an extremely common model going around that claims to work for MANY other vehicles. The plastic quality is cheap yet very sturdy, and it looks decent in the car. It would certainly do it's job if it could be installed right.
However, it does not properly "seat" in either of the rear cupholders because it's way too short, with a good 1.5" clearance of empty space. The included screws were way too short. So i got the idea to use longer screws, and drilled them securely into the cupholder. This seem to work great but, after a day or two it started to wobble and move around. Even though the screws were firmly secured, that empty dead-space at the bottom was keeping it from being fully snug, and i drilled the holes for nothing (noooo!!).
This is my 2nd option. I actually saw this one earlier but the hefty $70 price put me off it. However, after the failure of the first one and the good reviews i gave it a shot:
^^ Awesome!!! I WISH i had tried this one originally. First off, it feels of MUCH higher quality than the other one. Secondly, it doesn't even need anything to secure it. It fits almost perfectly in the frontmost, side-cupholder near the emergency brake. It wobbles a bit but, you can still use it for it's intended purpose as an armrest just fine.
However, i did want to secure it but was not willing to put anymore dill holes into my cupholder. So i went to lowes and bought this:
Scotch extreme mounting tape.
^^ It's basically heavy-duty, double sided mounting tape that you can use in places of drilling, to secure heavy things like trophy plaques to your wall. Has a 30lb weight capacity.
So i wrapped two strips around the bottom/base that inserts into the cupholder. This not only gave it the extra snugness it needed to seat firmly without any wobbling but, the double-sided adhesive tape also adds to securing it in place.
Perfect. Now i have a nice looking armrest that works great and looks like it came with the car!
My only regret is i didn't buy this one first and instead went with the cheap option, and drilled holes into my cupholder for nothing. D'oh! Learn from my mistake.
