    Looking to retro fit a genuine armrest from a 2016 JCW into my 2016 S.
    Not bothered about wiring for charging, just wanted somewhere to put my elbow
    My question is, are the centre consoles the same on non armrest models and armrest fitted models?

    Many thanks.

    Pleased you got it sorted. Yes you should be able to retrofit the armrest. I did the reverse of yourself and took the armrest out my car.

    The one I’ve bought is from someone who has done the same as you. It includes the centre console with the cut outs.

    So why did you remove yours? Do they get in the way or something?
    Just wondering if I’m doing the right thing now

    Total pain and found that it constantly got in the way even with the auto, would have been even worse with a manual. Try it and see how you get on its not that time consuming to change

    Ah right well, I’ll see how it goes. Guess it will always sell on if I can’t get on with it
