? for those who have installed an armrest?

ok so I am looking into getting one of those handy dandy armrests from Fleabay... now there are a couple types I have seen.
these are the 2 I have narrowed down
what one is a better long lasting solid type to get?
I wont be getting the OEM style as the cost is just a little beyond what I want to pay.
Armrest Centre Console for 2007 2011 Nissan Versa Tiida Latio Leather | eBay

or

Black Center Console Armrest Storage Box Double Cup Holder Universal Fit New Hot | eBay


Thanks!

I would get the one for the Versa instead of a universal one. Honestly I would get an OEM one used from a junkyard before any of those.

yeah kinda did that already.... just trying to get info on the ones they have as I do not want to just throw money out the window...
they got 2 main styles on Ebay.
1. the kind that mount in the cup holder.
2. the kind that use a metal bracket bolted to the sides of the center counsel.
out of the 2 I want to know what one is over all a better one to get.
how well do they wear over time and so on.

I bought the one that mounted in the cup holder, and it fits fine. In my 2012 sedan I did not have to screw the armrest in at all. It was a snug fit, and worked out great. Came from China, but the quality of the workmanship was fine, but you have to be patient regarding delivery. Anything sold in the U.S. ran about $120 and up, and was of the second type you mentioned. Good luck!

yeah I know from my airsoft hobby that china delivery is slower than conception and birth for an Elephant... but yeah that is what I was looking for! Thanks!

Mine too was the one that mounts in the cup holder. Its all black and the top of it is a pleather type material. It does feel somewhat flimsy but it has worked out great so far. Does not look aftermarket at all IMO. It fit so tight in the cupholder I didnt even use screws to keep it secured plus I didnt want to do that to my brand new car.
