So some of you have already done this so you know the process but since I had pictures on my phone I figured I would post the up if people could use them.
So it was found that the sliding cup holder from an 08+ STI would fit the XV console and can add a nice look, and function, to the interior. There are two pieces that I bought for mine (more if you want them).
-SUBARU 66155AG100JC GENUINE OEM FACTORY ORIGINAL FRONT CUPHOLDER
-SUBARU 66155AG010 GENUINE OEM FACTORY ORIGINAL INSERT
You need the insert or it's just one big open cup holder and your stuff won't stay put. The insert is cool because you can put it in either of the cup spots. So you can have the deep one in either spot. I got both parts off ebay from a Subaru dealer in NY. Cost was about $90 shipped for both pieces.
So the install is really simple. Takes about 10 minutes.
Flat Head Screw Driver
Phillips Head Screw Driver
1. Move passenger & driver seat all the way forward.
2. On each side of the console is a cover that needs to be popped off. Grab a small flat head and pop them off.
Inside is a regular phillips head screw. Probably a #2. Remove the screw on both sides.
Now slide the driver seat back and focus on the ebrake boot. Easiest spot I found was the corner near the heated seat switches. Just pried gently and when it popped up I just continued down. You can see that there are three spots the boot clips in. Once those are out you can pull up gently so separate the bottom clips.
Underneath the boot is a small screw. Undo that.
So all I did was tip the console to get to the screw underneath that hold the cup holder in place. You can see the three of them. The bottom screw only fits into one hole (even tho the piece has two. I think it makes it the same part for LHD & RHD)
So then everything goes back together as was removed. Final look...
