On many cars, the armrest or the storage-compartment lid that’s part of the vehicle’s floor console isn’t the most comfortable place to perch your elbow. Basically what you need is a booster for the armrest and that’s exactly what Auto Chic can supply. The company’s specially fitted products attached securely onto the existing console lid using Velcro straps, which allows it to be easily removed for cleaning or storage. The standard 12-by-6.5-inch boosters are available in either 2.5- or 3.5-inch heights and in a wide variety of colors. Vinyl armrests cos $60, while those finished in leather sell for $100. Auto Chic can handle special orders as well. Check out their complete range at www.armrests.com.
