In my car I found that the height of the armrests (original, factory) both on the door and the center console were never high enough to really be of any use. You'd end up leaning towards one or the other while driving. That makes my back hurt. I didn't realize this until after I got the elbow friend (what a name, every time I tell someone that name they laugh, me too!). I first got the elbow friend because the factory arm rest surface is hard, not comfortable at all. But after installing it, that's when I realized how I've been leaning to one side trying to get support! Now right where I drop my arm down while driving, my elbow hits the elbow friend exactly where the factory should've been. They probably saved money at the factory by making it lower (less material). I did use the velcro for the door arm rest, but on the center console I bought some velcro straps to hold it to the lid. Didn't want velcro sticky/adhesive/glue on the fabric center console. So would I recommend it? Oh yeah. best $20 I've spent. It's a pair of them for $20. The fabric is like a neoprene, polyester. It also has a zipper on the side so you can take the foam out and wash the cover. I know that the manufacturer sells these on their own website but I bought from walmart.com because they offered faster shipping than the manufacturer! Strange. But what's nice if it didn't work out, returning to a walmart store is easier than paying to ship back! I've had the elbow friend for a couple of weeks now and walmart asked if I would write a review. One of those automatic emails that says "please review your purchase".. I thought this was one that deserved a review. So after having it a couple of weeks I can definitely say this is one that I would buy again. Good quality.
