So many of us have kiddos running around in our backseats, and the lack of a cup holder has made several trips interesting to say the least.

I was surprised that the WRX didn't have one.

This is a really easy fix. I went to u-wrench-it a while back and found a forester. The cup holder is an exact fit for the panel plug in the WRX, plus it just pops out.

1. remove WRX factory cupholderless plug
2. plasti-coat forester rear cup holder
3. pop back in center console.
4. don't worry as much about spillage in the rear!

WRX vs. Forrester cup holder

Almost a perfect match

starting in 05 and up to 07 (not sure about 08+), they have dual cup holders. My 03 wagon had none but when I did the 05 center console swap, I acquired 2... Still, nice mod.

my 07 had 2 that folded out, but when my daughter was 3 she stepped on it and broke one. then later on the middle child finished it off. we just got the booster seats with cup holders!!
