Well, thanks for preaching to me instead of asnwering my question. Maybe I should go over to my friends house that owns a 2000 M5 and just tear his out becuase you feel so strongly. Hey, what about the people on the regular 5 series messageboards that have armrests installed from the factory. Those guys that own M540i's and 535's w/Dinan Superchargers are just the worst, are you preaching to them also? My driving style is just fine, talking on my hands-free cellphone, watching a movie while driving across Washington State, and speeding! I doubt if resting my arm is going to cause any major driving habits that could harm anyone. Thank you, next caller.......

I have noticed that the regular 5 series cars have fold down armrests attached to the side of the seat, and I wanted to know if anyone has attempted/suceeded to made this modification to our style of seats. I would love to be able to have this addition!

what is an arm rest for? To put your arm on it which means you don't have two hands on the wheel were they belong. An m5 is a drivers car and that is how it was designed. The more car control, the less distractions (hang up and drive), the safer we and everyone else on the road is. Sorry James..nohard feelings please but I feel we should keep the heritage alive.
