    I am new to this forum and I have searched here and online and have not had an easy time finding the cup holder insert that goes in the center console. I eventually found it on eBay but the seller is asking around $130. Does anyone know where I can get it for less? Below are pictures.

    If you come up with an answer to your question, let me know. I too was looking for the same thing. Seems impossible to find. I have found an insert that can go in the lower console, underneath the shifter (I call that area my purse holder!) and that insert adds two cup holders and a rectangular sort of tray....but, I don't want to reach down there for a drink when there's supposed to be a cup holder in the center console.

    That doesn't look like the one that came with my 2010. Probably a "new and improved" after market version.

    Exactly! Ive seen that one but you know how it is, we always want what is harder to get or cant be found! lol If the lower one was hard to find then we would probably be looking for that one!

    The part number for the one the OP has pictured is 08471-47050 (The cup holder with additional storage space)
    However, I haven't had any luck finding one in stock, or on a page in English...

    I just bought the cup holder and little tray for my console for about 84 and some change from my dealer.

    I don't have an answer for you.
    But $130 for a cup holder insert? Even if it does offer the convenience of fitting in your center console seems ridiculous.
    It seems nice, but even $84 dollars seems ridiculous.

    I've got an adjustable, locking-2 cup holder console, that I keep in my passenger seat when nobody is riding with me, and it holds 2 drinks of various sizes, has a place for glasses and/or anything....and I think it cost me less than $15.
    Before I did anything, I'd take a walk down a Wally World automotive aisle and see if there is anything else that might meet your needs.

    If I REALLY wanted it? You might talk me into shelling out $84, but you'd have to knock me unconscious and steal my wallet before I'd shell out over $100 dollars for those plastic inserts.
