Hello All,

A big thanks to the this forum, I lurked reading up on the Insight quite a bit before I finally went for a new Modern Steel Metallic 2021 Insight EX in mid-March. I feel like I generally knew what to expect when I test drove and then bought my Insight thanks to the people here.

I'm a long time Civic owner. The Insight replaced my 2010 Civic. My wife has a 2018 Civic EX, so it was interesting to see the differences and similarities with its Insight "cousin."

Pretty happy with it, but found a few little things I'll ask about in the right subforum.

Welcome and congratulations! My wife also has a 2018 Civic EX.

Pro tip: If you steal the coin tray out of her Civic, it'll fit your Insight (that didn't come with one) perfectly. ;)

I might do that, she doesn't use the coin tray.

In that vein, I was a little surprised to see the Insight come with the old cup holder. For the 2019 Civic refresh, Honda tweaked the cup holder, it's a little bit better (IMO the cup holder is still one of the weakest parts of the 10th generation design). I ordered the 2019 part for my wife's car as soon I learned about it, and then did the same for my Insight when I saw it came with the 2016-2018 part.

Interestiing! I didn't know we had an option. Can you point me to a photo or part number for the updated cup holder?

The cup holder just swaps right in place of the original one. It's got small "fingers" for different bottle sizes, still not great, but better than the 2016-18 version.
