Hi,
Had my 120 for about a year and my only complaint about the interior so far is lack of cupholders! had civic type-r before and it had 2 betweem the front seats! was in my local bmw garage yesterday and the had a coupe in with cupholders were i just have a cubby hole! are these available as a retro fit or have they got to be ordered from the factory?

cheers

It should just be a case of buying the cupholder trim to replace the blank centre consul you currently have.
Do you have Idrive - I'm not sure if the controller effects the ability to retrofit.

Personally I find them too small for most drinking vessels!

Had a look on realOEM for you and cannot see a retrofit kit for the console cup holders (there are other alternatives) so I think you have to replace the whole console main trim as I but maybe someone else can confirm this!? :?

Not sure tminal but I thought the cup holder/cubby/idrive strip had different part numbers making me think you could order that piece on its own. It could be plastic welded in though so VERY difficult to change and I'd expect it to be much more than the £30 factory option

the whole console has to be replaced - my cubby hole had a small blister appear (common problem). Under warranty BMW replaced the whole console as the cubby is not a seperate item

Yep I had to do this - missed the cupholders on the comfort pack

Part cost £70 (big old thing - goes all the way from the gear stick to the back seat console) and about £85 BMW dealer fitted (tried to get our mechanic at work to fit it but some airbag wiring to bypass and he chickened out)

Managed to get it all thought on expenses as 'Company car service work'!

For the cup holders? Or for the place you can get them?
