WTB: Center Console Armrest Booster

I am looking for one of these........apparently discontinued.

I don't really care about the cup holder (they were made either way)

It's Bird brand arm rest. Good luck finding one, I've been looking out for one for years.

FYI, I have seen these pop up on eBay a few times. You can 'save' eBay searches so it emails you when something matching is listed. I think I saw someone closing these out a while back, so you might still be able to find one new, have you tried emailing Bird Automotive directly, there site is still online.

Another option is the function first console riser. I have one of those and it's genius. Car still looks stock but now everything is at the level where you need it to be. As a bonus your shifter is also raised up 2 inches.

Funny, I did the same thing

I like it so much I removed it from my 996 when I sold it and installed in the 986.
