What sthe deal with those?

I have an old Impreza, but I hear everyone complains about the current ones on the Imprezas...Are they that bad?

ANd if they are, why didn't they change them?

I have to admit the cup holder must have been an afterthought. Here's a pic of it.....it's that push in bar right above the stereo.



The killer would be if someone had one of those DVD player head units....not only could you not use the cup holder with the screen up, but if the cup holder was out and you hit the open button......crash!

Hey all,

Not that I'll have food and drink either but though it was a little dumb to have a cup holder above the head unit. What if what your drinking sloshes out when some [email protected]$$ cuts you off and you need to perform evasive manuvers. Then you have soda coffee.....etc running down tyour head shorting it out. Or condensation for that matter dripping down. 99.9% of all electronics don't mix well with any liquids.

Well, being my daily driver mine will more than likely have the morning coffee in it. I never spilled anything in my car, other than down the front of me when I get that hole in my chin. I am going to be a lot more careful now with more of a cloth seat though. One good thing about the leather in my current car is being able to keep it clean pretty easily. I thought the WRXs have another cup holder in the center counsole. Did they take that one out? My 98 Legacy has the cup holder the same place in the dash, but it holds 2. The only real pain I found with the cup holder in the dash is it gets in the way of the stereo. Can't put cds in or take them out and you can't see the display.

You know this is a concern of mine as well. I'll definitely be carrying around blankets for this :wink:

Another Twisty Mountain Drive

i think the Apex turbo timer would fit perfectly in that place where the cup holder thing is.

Didn't Subaru expect an influx of women being picked up in the STi and as such added a secret clean up compartment or something..??

With as exciting as the STi is, just riding in it could soil the seats.

(ok did I got too far? no seriously I don't know. I have social problems :p )

What the heck does the cupholder matter?!?!?!

You should be driving, not drinking or doing anything else...

We've got enough problems in this country with drivers who can't pay attention...

I'm with whoever said they don't buy a car to carry a drink - that's a girl thing or something...

Not that we haven't gotten into enough girl things in this topic :wink:

Regardless of whether your plan on having a beverage in the car, the fact that Subaru decided to include it is reason enough for them to do it right. If you never use it, so much the better. But for people (like me) who do freqent 300+ mile trips, the need for a beverage is high. And the cupholder SUCKS. Now granted, I'm still #1 on my waiting list for an STi and it still has the crappy cupholder, so it obviously doesn't mean I'm not going to buy the car. But it will still be aggrevating every time I pop that sucker out and note how cheesy it is.

Bottom line - something worth doing is worth doing right. I'd gladly eat the $0.78 it would cost to put a decent cup holder in the car.

Point well taken JB...

I would trust you with a beverage while you were driving.

I guess I am more concerned about "the masses".

Oh well, they won't be driving STi's anyhow.

You're of course right - I hate it when car makers decide to save pennies and end up with less of a product (Nissan Altima, anyone?)

jbhebert,
all you need to do is buy one of those 'beer helmets' and put cokes or something in it (not alcohol of course!). that way you don't need the cup holder and you can have a straw that sits in your mouth so your hands stay on the wheel. (and maybe the helmet part will help protect you in the unfortunate case of an accident.)
