My $6, 10 sec install, lighted cup holders

Ebay, LED, $6 included shipping, just plugs into the USB port in the center console (and yes, it only turns on with the key). Just route it with the supplied groove on the top edge, I only use the front cup holder so no problem. Works perfect, a nice soft whitish glow.

While I was at it I made a plastic spacer to keep the sliding arm rest in place – it doesn’t have enough friction to hold in the forward position so this keeps it in place, about 3.5” x 2” x ½” thick (actually anything from ½” to 5/8” thickness will work). So that’s my total modifications to date. Sorry about the pics, black on black doesn’t show up so well. Jim

Wouldn't want a cable just there for a light, it sucks enough that i have my phone charge cable there. :(
Just me, but if I were to do it, I would drill a small hole in each holder and put in wide angle LED's and run them to the rear auxiliary power source.
LOL I guess you get what you pay for. Wouldn't it be better if the wire was the kind that you can set in place and just have it hover a little under the arm rest. That way you don't have to sit there and pull the light cable out every time you actually have a drink there.
