So whats up with the center console drink holder, there are no little arms to hold the drinks tight like on my 2000 Cruiser, and the cruiser one don't fit in the LX.

any ideas?

The LX should have come with a pair of pink panties in the glovebox. Just wrap those around the bottom of the cup and it will fit in the cupholder just fine:D

I have the center divider thingy on my 1998 cupholder. It might be a different design than your 2000. Does your 2000 look like this one? I vaguely remember mine looking a little different. I can check when I get home.

Do you have maybe part number for tihis divider? Or somebody else? I use split rubber cup holder to fix bottle inside cupholder, but it not look cool at all :frown:

I have never seen the butter fly cup holder? Is this available from Toyota? I would like to order one if so.

Thank you,

yeah thats what the one in my LC looks like, but it won't fit in the LX, the way they slide into to the base is different. On a LC you can also move the holder to the right or the left to fit bigger or smaller drinks as well as open up the "butterfly" to hold the drink. On the LX there is no provision to move the holder right or left.

you can't just order the holder thing, you gotta buy the whole holder and for a cruiser its like $150, a LX is $600(or so the dickhead at Lexus told me)

this is on Ebay, but the seller has not sent me a pic of the bottom of it so I can see if it will fit my LX.

I will try a one of Connies thongs.......in the holder that is ;)

Does anyone have the butterfly cup holder installed in a 99 model? Also does anyone have the part number?

Thanks,

took some pics of the LX vrs the LC cup holder. please no comments on the mess ;)

1999 LX holder(they way I got it)



with the insert(which does nothing)


with my boat drinkholder inserted to keep a pop can snug



2000 LC drink holder, without the OEM butterfly holder


with OEM butterfly holder inserted


as I said you can even move the holder to the right or left to fit bigger or smaller drinks

Dag gone. My 99 has the cupholder similiar to the Lexus. I have never seen the other cupholder in any of the LCs I have sat in over the years.

Let me know if the butterfly lexus part works.

you can not just get the butterfly part, you must buy the WHOLE holder, like I said its over $150.

the butterfly part in my 2000 came out of a 2005 LC........which is exactly the same set up as my 2000........so I will assume 2000-2005 are all the same

Doesn't that butterfly thing fit better flipped around. If you look in the picture, you'll see 3 tick marks in the holder, and 1 tick mark on the butterfly. I aligned these and it seems to slide into place much easier.

I thought the dealership put it in wrong as you have it oriented in the picture, so I flipped it around.

Perhaps the butterfly is directional. I was in a hurry and had to dig the divider thing out of the armrest. I seem to be using the cupholder more for a sunglasses thans cups. Where do you guys store your sunglasses? Is there some kind of JDM sunglass holder overhead or something?
