Easy to install MINI Cooper armrest that is both comfortable and stylish. It will easily attach to your center console while still offering access to your handbrake. It features a retractable pad w/ small storage compartment beneath. The compartment houses a retractable cup holder and the entire armrest can be flipped up and out of the way when not being used.

Fits the following models without the factory armrest:

2002-2006 R50 MINI Cooper and R53 Cooper S Hatchback
2005-2008 R52 MINI Cooper and S Convertibles

If you are removing the factory armrest, you will need the Armrest Delete Kit to convert the center console back to original before you can install this armrest. 

Installation is simple: The armrest bracket mounts into the rear cup holder with three screws. The storage compartment's padded bottom surface rests on the center console supporting any weight applied to the armrest. The design allows for easy access to the emergency brake handle.

Question:
I would like to replace the original armrest with this one and I want to be sure it will fit. It does have the factory armrest.  Is the delete kit difficult to install?
Answer:
If your MINI came with the factory armrest, the NMI4016-BLK armrest will not fit unless you use our NMK7751 armrest delete kit before you install our armrest.
If you have some basic mechanical skills, it shouldn't be too difficult. Below is the instructions for removing the center console:
