  2. Center rear seat arm rest for XC-70 light gray

    Condition is like new, but it was the wrong color. Would definitely look cool in a black interior to add some contrast. It's a plain leather one, no cup holders or anything special.

    I did mine at 80k on a 12 year-old 2004. I figured it was worth the peace of mind. I read too many stories from people who had system failures and the subsequent engine damage.
