MOD request

I'd love to see someone make a notch under their armrest for a wire passthrough (phone aux input and/or charger). I hate putting the weight of my arm on the console when there is a wire in the way goofing with and possible affecting the console hindges. My wife gets a kick out of the fact that her Mazda has this and the 335 doesn't

just heat up a larger nail and melt a little "U" into the plastic where you want the wire to pass through the armest and then file off any of the melted plastic that looks bad

I ran the wire under the rubber thing in the center arm rest and had it come out the side of the center trim by the E brake.
