I've seen a post here recommending an available armrest which flips up for storage AND slides forward.....but my website shows the flip-up version which I have installed in my '97 528.
My guess is the console armrest is the same for 540 and 528. Go to:
: I've searched the archives and saw previous messages on replacing the armrest with one that flips up for storage. I called Pacific BMW and they said the 51-16-6-196-936 is specified for the 528. Has anyone already tried this in a 540? I want to make sure it fits fine in either.
: The person I spoke to mentioned a 51-16-8-190-199 that was for the 540 which was leather but did not flip up. Has anyone seen this part?
: Thanks in advance
