Removable cup holder

Quick question on the removable cup holder on center console. Is there a designated storage place for this if you remove it and don't wish to use it?

No designated storage space. You can put it in the glove compartment or elsewhere.

Sure there is. Underneath the armrest. There is a compartment with a slot so you can position the cup holder and still retaining its use.
I remember seeing a review on youtube.

In the center console there is a dedicated spot for it. Took these pics while test driving the 2013 X1 just for you

I'm not a fan of the way the cup holder hangs off the side like that, but at least they did make a nice storage spot for it when you're not using it.

the only thing is that you loose storage space, something which is surprisingly at a premium in a car this size!! The glove compartment get filled with the BMW manual..

My 2012 328i holder goes in the glove box in a net that is mounted to the top. Not exactly convenient to change it unless parked.

I keep my manual in a storage space made for it in the trunk. I believe in the X1 there is a compartment with a net inside the hatch area for owners manual storage.
