I really dont like them. Unless you have a can of drink they are completely useless and I want to replace them with some better ones. Anyone tried this?

Im going to look into replacing the whole unit with something better.

How do you reckon you could go about putting on of these in?

Ebay item number 150050404984 just enter that in ebay search because im at work and cant copy links from behind a proxy.

I'd say you'd have to lose the top flap, or trim it down a fair bit.

As for the side-profile, you might have the twin cupholder black part revealed, whereas on the BA console the console walls would hide this.

I wouldn't try it on the only console you have, but if you could get one from the wreckers for cheap then definitely practise on it!
