Picked up my new to me 2002 128i yesterday. Really a nice car, low (30k) mileage, very comfortable, handles like it is on rails. The build sheet says it has a couple of options that I liked...

481 SPORT SEATS F DRIVER/FRONT PASSENGER
488 LUMBAR SUPPORT DRIVER/FRONT PASSENGER
along with:
704 M SPORT SUSPENSION
840 HIGH SPEED SYNCHRONISATION

The only problem that popped up was that the arm rest latch is broken, so the arm rest is spring loaded in the up position. I did some research, and looks like that might be a common thing. So to fix this I would need to swap out the armrest? It looks like the latch part is plastic, but the latch can't be replaced by itself, or so it appears. It looks like a lot of folks just take the armrest off, or use velcro to keep it closed. If you have had this problem, Any help on this would be appreciated.

Im really happy with this car!!!
