    Dont worry about it mate, you'll only be dissapointed when you get it out because nothing fits it!

    Mine got stuck as the piano black trim had moved slightly. I pushed the surrounding trim until it was seated ok and as if by actual magicv... my 'cup' holder revealed itself :)

    It is as previously mentioned useless...

    haha I thought you were kidding. Its above the radio, top left of the dash trim. Its a little slot of plastic that you push and it transforms into a phone... I mean cup holder.

    ...as it does my Blackberry Storm until I have to plug the charger in... but then thats more a design issue with the Storm than the cup holder methinks...

    Still, it did keep my Dr Peppers cold with the aircon directed at it so not all bad :)

    Just spoils the clean look of the dashboard when its out....

    I just found this pic on piston heads of a pre face lift and it doesn't have the cup holder:

    This next pic is a facelift S3 and you can see the cup holder slot to the left of the hazard button:

    gumball, if you prise off the piano trim with a flat blade driver, the cup holder comes out like a cassette...you can then clean clean clean to ya hearts content till its all working again....

    I can't believe everyone is slating the S3s cup holder!

    I find it awesome. It holds my phone when it's on charge and being used as a satnav, but most importantly holds my starbucks "small" americano when I'm on a long work trip. In fact I like it so much I just got one for the amrest :)

    As mentioned before holds an iPhone perfectly also not too bad for cans of Relentless (i should know, i get through enough of the bloody stuff!) Word of warning though, dont do any spirited driving until the can is at least a third empty or the cup holder WILL cease to function soon after, sticky stuff Relentless!
