Default Center armrest/cupholder replacement?

I'm not sure if it was an engineering oversight or what but I found the center armrest to be completely useless while driving manual. Not sure if it depends on a certain body type but changing gears just doesn't feel ergonomically correct and forget about using the cupholder.

Needless to say it was kept upright all the time but the persistent rattling finally got to me today...I did have a chuckle removing it just a single bolt.

Curious if anyone has replaced aftermarket?

I think the only options were aftermarket; I don't think there was a factory armrest, to my knowledge. I believe you could get one from Irmscher and Boomerang. I have a Boomerang in mine, and sounds like it's the same one you have as it's certainly in the way of changing gears. I still think it's worth it for long highway slogs, but for most short drives I leave it raised. I also removed the cupholder insert to prevent excessive rattling.

Boomerang makes center armrest for the Astra.
