Here it is folks. The final version of the official armrest that will be available from the factory and MINI dealers. As we had predicted the final version is neither the MINI-Fini design nor the previous official version released for a short time last year. It’s a new design that both can fold up and allows use of the rear cup holder
The unit is topped by black leatherette and uses silver plastic that should match the look found on the steering wheel. The top slides back and even folds down for even more access.
The armrest should retail for around $200. It will (finally) be available with the convenience package on the MINI Convertible (both models) and as a standalone option this March.You can see the original press pics here and some hands-on photos below:
