The extended arm rest came from an RX300? And they are a direct plug and play? I did not know that.

It looks nice. Very nice in fact.

They came from JJ Products, they fit both the 300 and 04/09 330/350. They are great for long trips!

Carver, you're settling in nicely with the 330 with all your mods. And you've owned it how long I wouldn't think the armrests would look good but yours certainly do. There are no armrests on the 3rd gen. What's next? It's fun watching you change your RX into something extraordinary.

Next is something I wouldn't have done on the 300 but I think the lines of the 330 will support...stay tuned!

This is a great option. I hate the narrow OEM ones on my RX. So much so, that I always keep it folded up: I can never rest my arm on it comfortably.

The quality seems very good, the leather is thick and supple. Of course time will tell but they do have a three year warranty.

Someone on here posted they had used them for three years with no difficulties other than the driver's rest pushing off to the right slightly. Knowing the mechanics of the things, that could most likely be adjusted.

I'll post a pic every year.

Finally a good pic with a dual one and the center console. Looks great. I am gonna buy it when I have the extra $$ asap. I hate the OEM ones. I find my arm ends on on the passenger side one allot lol!

As promised, one year later a pic of the armrests.



Actually, I always use the passenger rest, it's just more comfortable. I didn't bother to adjust the seats so they were at the same height so as you see the drivers is a bit lower. The condition of the leather is excellent and the only noticeable flaw is the pass rest has been pushed a little to the right due to the constant pressure from me using it .

Frankly, I hadn't even noticed it until today. It could be easily remedied by either pulling the rest back towards me or removing it and straightening the mounting bracket. I highly recommend these rests over those skinny, painful factory ones.

Default Arm Rest

I put a wide arm rest on my drivers side when I first bought my RX. That was 5 years ago. And you can see a lttle of the tilt from the pressure.

The next time I have a few minutes. I will take it off and bend the bracket.

Excellent mod. Much better than the small arm rest that sat up too high.

Carver, you should also add the leather cleaning tips to your signature. Your seats look factory new.
