Mk5 did not have the armrest standard (unless you bought a pirelli  :nerd: ) it was an option on that in the uk.
Mk1 GTI, Mk6 GTI, Mk1 Leon & 3 non VW.

Ive just bought the below armrest and I know they have a few more,  it is the standard armrest no mdi fitting just a blank for the aux in and the bigger cubby hole, plus only cloth tops.

Customer service at hayseldon vw are good and they advertise on ebay quite a bit.

I have been looking to buy from them actually!

Can you add the MDI in future if you want to? would AUX still be functional?

Do you mind snapping a photo of the inside?

Thank you!!
