The cup holder in the front center arm rest is flimsy and may break, making it impossible to close the cup holder assembly.

    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.

    I've found a website with a "fix" package for about $180. Anyone know about it?
