    oh right lol.
    its handy for me... i like to have my coffee in my flask on the way to work (1 hour drive) or keep a small bottle of water in the car but i currently have to put it in the drivers side door pocket which rattles like a B*tch!

    at least with the US console i can maybe put some felt liner at the bottom to stop the rattle

    Or you leave it in there over night and the drink leaks out the bottom and every thing gets sticky.
    Grrrrrr

    I only got 1 cup holder and its above the stereo and HVAC, stupid bloody place for it.

    If you're adding power sockets, don't forget the 240v and the 5.2v USB socket. :)

    I question this, The person who ordered my car brand new im sorry to say this but you were quite tight LOL. Why order leathers, s line pack, auto lights and all that other stuff and scrimp on the armrest! Tight bugger.

    My situation wasn't as bad as my mates R32 he had leathers etc, He HAD the armrest but the person who ordered his car brand new was so tight he got a cloth lid....Pitiful

    Back to this console situation Khufu you need a armrest and ash you need to stop drinking in the car bro.

    I did, honestly, its just that the part list with prices had multiples for cigarette lighter, and cup holder n stuff,
    i think this is a great solution for my very annoying drinks holder,
    this was at my time of purchase the only downside to my car,not my only down side now:(,
    reminds me of my old mkv golf

    there are 2 cig lighters as the us console has 2 spaces, but they don't seem to be the same as the one in our current console, hence the need to buy 2 new ones.

    im also guessing that the main console has the 'cut out' for the cup holder and then there is another piece that fits in it to make up the actual cup holder as we see it.

    as all parts and prices are listed im sure it is something that can be bought slowly for anyone that doesn't want to feel the spend of almost £200 just on plastics.

    I really the look of this... I would much prefer the 12v in the current cupholder location as well.

    I'd lose that storage slot though, which is perfect for my pack of Wrigleys Extra :(

    you didnt take that pic just for me did you? haha.

    im lucky that the previous owner of my car installed bluetooth, so i could leave my phone in my coat pocket in the boot if i wanted to, and still take calls :)

    i just need someone to call me now...

    Lol at all of you guys 'essential travel accessories' - chewing gum, sun glasses and fruit gums :)

    At least the second cup holder looks bigger than on the UK version - all I've managed to fit in that is an Innocent Smoothie bottle!!?

    £200 to move your cupholders two inches forward and your cigarette lighter two inches backwards??? You lot are out of your minds!

    Pay me £100 and I'll retrofit you a cupholder and FOUR 12v sockets, located wherever you want them.....

    If you think the person who spec'd your car is tight then you need to see my car's spec!
    I need Bob Geldof, Lenny Henry, Band Aid, and the full comic relief crew to help out with the povery that is taking place inside my car.


    Here is my spec list:

    1) Armrest.

    End of spec list.


    I'm thinking of having my doors wired up to my concert stereo so that when they are opened this tune blares out of my tinny standard speakers...
