First pic I've seen of the manual gearbox in the EX. look at the baby screen
From what i've seen the armrest center piece still slides back and forth like the current car. which is awesome. still has storage inside. and the wrap around design it has will definitely make it more comfortable and usable as where the current one sits just a smidge too low and too far back, even when pulled forward in my opinion.the center arm rest looks like it will work very well "daily"
