    My Breeze didnt have one, so i bought one from the bay for £12, cleaned it all up with some washing detergent and it looked fine, then I went to vauxhal to buy the centre console bit, it was about £70 and goes from the cupholder to the back seats, simple to change! Pop out the cupholder, undo a couple of screws in there, pop out the rear ashtray and surround, couple more screws in there, put car into reverse to get gearstick out the way and slide the old unit forward, throw that in the bin! Slide the new unit back in, slot the armrest in (you will need 4 screws which i managed to get from halfords (M6)) screw armrest in place, screw new centre console in place, pop in the rear ashtray!

    All in it took about 15 minutes, it was so easy I fitted it in the vauxhall carpark!

    So much nicer to drive with armrest and the extra storage under it is handy too!!

    The armrest is very good, it slide back and forth too. Being taller, I slide mine forward but it really is worth it !!

    I think this might be what your after ?
