: Check with previous posts R-Well. They say that you can get them at quality imports. However I called them and the person I spoke with said that they do not have a listing for them.

: Please, someone post part # for 323i armrests or give the name of the person they spoke with at quality imports.


I got a quote from them for a beige leatherette armrest. The guy who responded to my e-mail didn't give his name, but his e-mail is [email protected] Actually, they gave me a quote first, then wrote me a few minutes later with another one (he said the first was a mistake).

First quote:
"PN 51-16-8-193-621 $93.00 + shipping and handling
Now that's not the entire console. It's only the armrest part of the console."

Second quote:
"Center console only PN 51-16-8-238-224 $138.00 + shipping ($12.00)
Total $150.00"

I think the first quote was the replacement armrest P/N...if your already-installed armrest was damaged and you needed a new one. The second probably a the kit to install the armrest on a "center console only" vehicle. I haven't actually ordered it yet, so take these quotes with a grain of salt.

They also said that they install them for $65. I imagine a dealer would probably charge $100 for installation. I thought I saw a post on here a while ago from someone who installed it themselves in 45 min.

If you get an armrest from Quality Parts, let me know how it goes! I may be doing the same thing in a few months.
