Does anybody know of another seller of these leather armrest covers other than eBay? I need one for my '99 gs400 with grey leather and the ebay leather ones are for the darker grey color leather apparently. Having a hard time finding a decent match for my lighter grey leather interior.

Thanks

When I bought mine off eBay. I was also afraid of matching the interior to the new wrap. I also have the light grey interior, look and see if you can find "medium" grey, that's the lighter grey interior you're talking about that you need.

Thanks for the info. Were you able to find the "medium grey" cover in leather? I've seen a vinyl one available, but want leather.

I ended up getting the vinyl one in medium grey.

You can do it! Just follow the directions here. I did mine a few years back and my armrest looks great.

Funny I came across this thread - I ordered one of these a few days ago for my new high mile DD "project" car which literally has a hole dug into the console (amongst other "issues" that I will fix)

Hope mine turns out as well as some of the guys who posted!

P.S. - on a side note, my other GS4 (in my avatar) still has a nice MINT console, because I try not to rest my arm there too much, and yell at passengers to "get their arm off" AND the car has under 70K KMS on it - the whole car looks pretty new still that car never even drives if it's raining!
