Wanted to check whether it is standard for the bottom of the front cup holders to be hard plastic? It means if you put keys or phone in there they slide around and rattle like mad. It would make so much more sense for there to be an insert.

Are they all the same?

Thanks!

I cut a piece of felt and just popped it into the bottom of each cup holder, done this on other cars so had a piece available, paid 99p for it from a stationary shop, cheap fix.

Thanks everyone.. Seems like an odd place to save money when they designed the car...

Here we are discussing putting bits of felt, or pouring quick setting coffee into your cup holder thingy in order to stop your brass and stuff from rattling around. Beggars belief, especially in a motor which, looking at the spec, cost well beyond 50 grand. Surprised no one has suggeted a little quick setting Marmite, that's if Tesco have any left.

To be fair, it is meant to be a cup holder, not a change or phone holder.

With inevitable drips from cups, some sort of wipe clean surface is a sensible choice.

In all honesty, Jaguar should have placed a rubber insert in the base of the cupholder. Everyone else does it and by making it removable you can clean it if it gets mucky. Of course folk pop their coins in there, Mrs A has some special coin for shopping trolleys permanently stored in the base of our current car's cupholder.

I think it is quite funny if you stop and think about it. Here we are, most of us probably busy, professional folk but we are contemplating purchasing some felt / rubber and cutting it out with scissors to get a good fit on the base of the cupholders!

Maybe some of us could get together for a cut & sew evening. Arts & crafts and all that.

Best wishes to all.

Arianne

PS. Oh, how much does the car cost again?

Cup holder cover £55 Cup holder liner £55, they could have chosen and irregular shape and charged us for the cups too!

That's probably how Jaguar would see this thread, lets rip them off some more, Jaguar used to be the "value for money" luxury car, they are now the over priced underdeveloped below average car!

I don't think I've ever had a car with the cupholder base lined in some form or fabric.. its always been a form of hard tactile plastic or rubber..

the chap who was selling the circular cup holder covers now has a new line of product to expand in to!
