    Am I doing something wrong or is the pop-up cup holder in the centre consol unfit for purpose?

    Stick a standard travel mug in and it gets right in the way of my right arm, making steering almost impossible.

    There's a gap just to the left of the holder when it's up, but far from ideal.

    It's designed for a LHD vehicle, that's why they're useless.

    They aren't great as they are designed for LHD as said, but it does allow you to put a can in place which the standard compartment doesn't (its not wide enough).

    Pull the insert out and small bottles (fanta, ribena etc) fits. Just.

    Cancel my last. A quick tug at the back frame and the whole thing came out. AND I found three 10p coins. Right result.
