Re: Anyone find out if the armrest will fit? (GTI ONE DAY)
these are the measurements for the arm rest
hopefully one of the current 337 owners can measure for us
At the widest point it is 5 1/8 "
length 13 1/8"
height from the top of the console 9"
Might work, but if the widest part of the armrest meets the widest part of the seat, there will be a little rubbing, and eventually a deformation of the inside bolsters. Also, the opening/closing action of the armrest storage console would likely aggrevate the problem. Even if it just rubs a little, I can see why VW would leave it off. I can imagine the howls of indignation over VW's shoddy design work if the armrest pushed against the seat even a tiny bit.
Honestly, I was the worst "sideways sloucher" in the world, and thought I would really have a hard time getting used to not having it. But in reality I don't even notice its not there.

Before I sold my Passat
I drove around the last couple of days with the armrest in the "up" position to make sure it wouldn't bother me. I'll miss the storage more than the ability to lean on it. Guess I'll be buying a NB sunglass holder! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
