Possibly stupidest question ever???

Why is there no cup holder in the second row in an 09? Did the 2010 or 11 have them?

my 09 has them - you fold down the center armrest and then flip open the cup holder from the top/front

Thank you, I just went out in the garage and sure enough, there they were! Thanks again!

To be fair, they're easy to miss. They're in the same location in the X3 and although I knew we had them, I completely forgot about them. We often drive with two of our friends in the rear (they live nearby) and after two years of them balancing their drinks on their laps I only remembered we had drinks holders and a centre armrest in the rear a few weeks ago. :-S

If you have the RFs and dont have a spare tire...... do you remember that there's a shit load of extra storage space underneath the board that lifts up in the trunk area? Went to camping fully loaded only to find out when I came back to vacuum did I remember this!

I keep my portable air pump in there. Came in handy once, when I got a nail in the RFT, I filled up the tire and took it to the tire shop. Occassionally I keep stuff in there, it's not much of a space though, I would have imagined there will be lots more, but I have the 3rd row so maybe ones without have more space.

more a stupid design than question. I've a baby car seat in the middle which renders the cup holders useless.

I have to laugh at this whole thread. Even though i'm an E53 owner I went straight out to the garage wondering where my rear cup holder was, after 6 months of ownership lol

Found em.... push button pop outs from the center console.

Although not a single person has rode in the backseat since i've had it, i'm glad I know!

stupid questions lead me to find out stupid things that stupid me didn't know abuot ! Thanks
