Thread: Rear cup holder in WRX

  1. #1

    Cool Rear cup holder in WRX

    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


    The money shot


    Almost a perfect match


    not bad, (esp. since I wont ever see it)


    Test run

    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.
    You can't negotiate turns, you can't signal properly, you can't maintain speed, you can't parallel park.Hell, you can't drive!
