I've seen people talking about arm rests, apparently OEM is like $300? But you can also get ebay ones? The fact that it doesn't have one right now is the only thing that bothers me about this otherwise awesome beast lol.

Also wondering what it takes to install, like steps and whatnot... Do you have to cut through the seat fabric? Or does it bolt on somewhere?

The armrest does not interfere with shifting, I own an SL six speed and it shifts very well; there is plenty of space between the shifter and the armrest. Now for the bad news. Don't get the ebay one. The top part gets screwed to the lower part of your existing center console. When I saw one installed, the fit didn't feel right. There was a bit of wobble, plus the finish of the piece feels cheap and weak. My buddy leaned his forearm and the thing creaked. I say spend the time and get a full armrest from the junkyard. I posted a tread on how to install it (removing center console). happy hunting!

I don't know how much a junk yard one goes for but the ebay one i got works great for what i need. It's better than what i thought it would be. I'm happy with what i got and for the price i paid for it. I can take it out in a second if i need to for what ever reason. Never regretted getting it.

Most people don't like to drive manual transmissions, and the thought of an extra gear was too much for most potential Versa buyers. Also, the CVT(suckers) was a very attractive offer over a six speed manual transmission.
