For those who have their new car in the driveway… :)

Just read an article that said while the BRZ is on the top ten cars of the year list, the one major flaw is the cup holders.

Will I be able to drink my coffee on the way to work? Just wondering how people are finding it… is it really as annoying aa it sounds? Can you get an add on cup holder of some kind?

If you have the manual, don't even bother using the center console cupholder. It is hard to reach it when you are driving. Your best bet is to use the door one. Automatic ones have an extra one on the center console and that is much better but too bad for manual it'll get in the way when shifting.

I don't allow drinks in my cars.

I am coming from a 2013 Infiniti G37 (manual), and their cup holders were horrible. There were two that were micro that only held a can of Coke. They placed them touching each other, so any two large drinks were smashed together causing their lids to be pried off.
At least the BRZ's cup holders a spaced apart to hold a large cup.

I have one (MT), the cup holders are pretty far back but kind of usable although I haven't done much morning commuting yet, so yea they're not great but I think doable.

My GF's MBZ has cup holders that can be removed leaving a place to store items like a normal glove box. I hoped to find the holders were removable but it looks like Toyota didn't give us the option.

I bought one of these. Intrudes on passenger space, so I throw it in back if someone will be sitting there. Center part holds the phone really well with a 6" or so USB cable.

Automatic center console conversion for those of you who want that extra one. I use it to hold my phone / wallet, sometimes an occasional drink.

Looks like $586 and have to swap power /snow mode switch View attachment 8536
They are way overcharging for the parts just FYI. I paid ~$200 for mine and the most expensive part is the cubby with the doors. The physical console itself is only $30 (but the MT cubby doesn't fit the AT console perfectly)
