question: in europe we have this "cup holder" behind the reverse handle of the QP but it isn't really a cup holder. It is filled with a rubber with 2 holes to hold 2 tiny mobile phones (image attached). It is too shallow to hold a cup in curves. Can this be changed to become a real cup holder....the holes are too small for my mobile anyway.....

i notice the cell phone inserts from magazines. is it just an insert that you can remove?

actually, i m more curious about the "Stradale" on your transmission switch...

No the mobile phone holder is factory installed in Maserati and mentioned as such in the user's manual "the mobile phone holder next to the handbrake can hold 2 mobile phones". Attached a better picture (now with the macro switch activated). The rubber is held into place with a screw in the middel (under Maserati trident) but it sits also under the chrome ring. You can not just take it out and I am afraid trying too. Now it has no use to me since the holes are to small for many mobile phones. What do you have then in your's M!? I guess if you guys have a real cup-holder then I could change it buying that part. So at least I can put a coke or my phone there.....

The "GT Stradale" on the reverse switch is the name of the garage that installed the Tubi. Not sure if I'll leave it there or not (it can be removed). They are specialised in Ferrari/Maserati and also do the occasional Lambo or Porsche. They prepare cars for use on tracks and races and restore cars. They always have some nice cars there when I visit them....However they did not see many QP's....It are more the "racy" cars that go there....http://gtstradale.com

hi jgt. the default and only choice we have is the cup holder in north america.
perhaps you can ask the dealer to change it out for you.

Just picked up the cupholder from the dealer. Once at home I noticed that something seems to lack......Don't see how I can fix without seeing the screw. US guys what do I need? Isn't the cup holder covered with rubber inside? This is just a plastic box with a chrome ring and 4 rubber flaps. Thanks....

so the inside is just hard black shiny plastic???? Then the european version is more "classy". I expected something similar so the inside "dressed up" with somethng soft (rubber f.e.) but without compartments....
