not sure as to the best, think my bike rack is brill, as its fixed and looks part of van. Bull bar with spots looks cool, black alloys and tinted rear windows.....tow bar.....mud flaps....wind deflectors....all really add to the individual look. In my oppinion and thats what matters to me.....

Well on your recommendation I bought one (not entirely - I've been thinking about one for a while now).

Agree with what you said, fits well & looks the part against the existing interior. Couple of minor quibbles, one it's awkward, but not impossible, to adjust the seat back position and the other is entirely my fault in that as I have raised the driver's seat the Armster sits a bit low so I'll have to raise that as well.

Overall impressed with the quality and fit of this. It is an expensive bit of kit but hopefully it will prove itself worthy. Might find out as I'm off to Aberdeen tomorrow !!

Nice one Coco.

I found it was a bit low for me too, as have a nice memory foam cushion to boost me up. Glued a few plastic shims onto the raising/lowering button to give it some more height and a comfortable laid back angle........

Had it four years now...... no wear, at all, 80,000 miles on!!

Thanks for the pics and thread. Think ill purchase one for the Bipper. They do a base converter that needs a little screwing and umming and arring there, but should in theory go on nicely.

Off topic Adam, do you work with diagnostic software much? Lexia, Diagbox

Don't know about the Bipper, but on ours the adapter screws to pre drilled holes on the base of the armrest, then the complete assembly sits on top of the centre console. Then all thats needed is to drill a 3mm hole through the mounting holes in the adapter - no measuring or anything

Andre, haven't worked with Lexia much but am familiar with the operations of the PSA Diagbox system. Is a wonderful package!
Getting any sort of authorised copies???
