Where to find JDM Console Box???
 
Does anyone know where to find the JDM dual console box? I know Japan Parts has it, but its out of my price range with the shipping costs. Cheam Motors in UK used to sell it, but they are now out of business. AVO, Rallitek and MachV no longer sell it.

Part Number:
Armrest Extension with Additional Storage – Off Black - J2017AG000 (JDM#) or J2010AG001JC (EDM#)
...as seen here: http://www.japanparts.com/images/ImageFromDB.php?base=1&no=7955

How much is that thing? I almost pulled the trigger on the USDM extension today. I hadn't seen that one. It can't be much more than the $145 for the US one.

I want to say with shipping it was getting close to the $180-$200 range from japanparts. Cheam did a group buy about 3-4 years ago on these armrests, but it seems after that they were just difficult to come by. I really dont want to spend much over $140.

Looks like it's $144.10 plus shipping (~28.00 to me). It DOES say A/T only, and A-C only, and that it MIGHT NOT fit USDM models.

All three of those things go against my 09 M/T OBXT. I'd happily order one if someone could confirm fitment.

It definitely fits, it was confirmed about 5 years ago:
JDM Armrest extension installed

It says for A/T only because it *could* interfere with shifting...if you are short. Most people that have used it really like it, which is why they never show up in the member's classifieds used :mad:. Now this may not fit your model year, I believe they made a separate revision for the 08-09 models: http://www.cheammotors.co.uk/j2010ag020jc-i940.html
But, even though that link works, Cheam motors is currently closed down.

Hmm, I wonder if the "beige" is the same in EU as the Ivory in the US?

I'd do more legwork, but I just don't have the time right now. Definitely not going to get the USDM one though, now that I know something like this exists.

It only comes in 2 colors, Ivory/Beige and Off-Black/Grey. I think the colors are synonymous.

The one from Japanparts fits on the 08'-09' Legacy. I bought one and installed it on mine with no problems at all.

Pics?

Cheam went out of business? Wow.
I bought this item from them back in 2005.

It pretty much looks exactly like this. If you want pics from a different angle though let me know and I can go snap some.

i dont think cheam went out of business their website seems to be still up and running.

Boostin 06-10-2010 03:55 PM

I went on Cheam's website and it said they had to close business, but would be reopening for a limited time to clear stock. Maybe a discount on the armrest extension????

kelven 06-12-2010 08:47 AM

I am interest about this too. Is it possible to take a few more from the side? Perhaps to stick a ruler or some sort for scale for how much the extension has increased vertically and horizontally?

Main reason for me to consider this is because I wish I can rest my elbow with just my right hand holding the steering wheel when cruising. I do not have a long arm, just afraid even with extension, my fore arm still would not fit

Also, I have a rather tall (over 9") water bottle that I love which I want to make sure it fit there perfectly.

Thanks Big Ticket!!
