    The flimsy circular piece of plastic that holds the cup holder in place broke. Can't see a fix for this.

    The arm rest cup holder is broke such that I can't close the lid. Though, I can snap whats left of the plastic connections, it is snapped.

    I don't have a solution? Not unless I purchase another used center console with a working lid. But that doesn't solve the problem. It would be just a matter of time before it breaks again. We're able to still put cups in it when parked. I don't recommend driving with liquid filled cups in the holder. Especially with it already broke. It's the only item that I have a problem with. Otherwise, it's a beautiful car and well made.

    I'm proud to be a Jaguar owner.
