Alex from is running another group buy for the official MINI armrest for all those that missed the first. Here's all the info from Alex:

Hi Folks! The second group buy for the armrest is on its way!. The price for one rest including postage and packing is now 130 Euros which is something around $168.

The armrest is $7 more expensive since my last order but you guys still save more than $30 off the standard US price:

Remember, this item is NOT available in the US and wont be for the next couple of months!
