Center console

I test drove a 2013 limited and loved everything except the fact that there isnt an armrest attached to the driver/passenger seat. You only have the center console to rest your arm on and the problem i'm having is that I'm short and need to have the seat pretty far forward and raised high to reach the pedals and see the road. this prevents me from using the center console to rest my arm on. Anyone ever raise the height of the console or add an armrest to the actual seat before?

Since i have the seat up so high to see better since i'm so short, the console sits too low for me to rest my arm on it. the only thing i can think of is to put a small pillow on it but hoping for a better solution.

Apparently, only the Limited has this feature.

I just ordered and will let you know. If you decide to get it, try this code for free ship and 10% off, 4JK4HRF4. Saved me about $8 or so.

I ordered the small size. There are cheaper ones on Amazon, but the reviews were bad, so I decided to just get this one.

Thanks for the info and for the coupon code
I will have to measure the console on the 2013 limited to see what size I need

Wow, off topic, but the picture shows it installed in my other car. Not such a big deal until you consider there was only 236 made with that interior. (less than 2000 total)
