i don't have one, was it optional or something? I don't even see a place where it would attach. I want one!

Nope...I don't think it was available at all. But you can add one though. Check the tech section on AW. But I think it's quite expensive to get all the parts.

if you drive a 5spd, it's not worth the effort to add one IMHO. My 99.5 came with one, and I hate it, it gets in the way of shifting so I keep it up 24/7

I love mine! Angle it a notch down and with a SS it is so comfortable...

my 97 has an armrest on the center console...It does get in the way tho, i always have it flipped up.

here in holland almost everything on the B5 was an option :D, also the armrest it was a pretty expensive option costs about ÔéČ177 (that's about 110usd i think)

My 96 has an armrest. So did the previous owner add that or was it an option.

i drive 5 spd and i love the arm rest. I was a little pissed at first because i didn't know you could tilt it even further down(so its at a slant down not level)

I was looking for an armrest for my 97. So called up my local dealership a while back. They quoted me $600 canadian. So I said *#$k that. I'll do without one.

once you bring it down to the "level" angle and it locks in, instead of pushing the handle in to lift if up, push it in and push down, the arm rest should angle down and be a lot more comfortable. For me, it rest my arm perfectly with the shifter

My 97 did not have one. I found one at the junk yard for $80.00 and installed...little bit of a pain to cutup the center console for the monting bracket but worth it in the end.
