Mustang Dark Horse
Hello everyone, I am new to this forum . I thought I could share this with you all.

This is for anyone interested in adding a cupholder with ambient light to their mustang .
I did this to my mustang Darkhorse couple weeks ago .
Parts needed :
Cupholder from a Lincoln corsair (LJ7Z-7813562-BA)
, also a wire light from a 2016 mustang . There is a place in SC that sells mustang parts . So I bought from them a center console from a 2016 mustang gt for 50 bucks since they are close to me.
I only used the wires , since they are RGB
Lifgts. Connection It was really simple red ,blue green and orange (power).
I tapped the wires under the driver foot ambient light and it worked great.
Here are some pictures , the cupholder fits almost 100%., with some minor trims to make it fit . The cupholder from the Lincoln has an angle , so make sure to install the angle the opposite way from the angle of the center console in the mustang for a proper fit.

First , You have to remove both sides of the leather panel , in order to remove the center console . Then remove the two screws on both sides of the center console. Remove the screws from the drift shift . Remove the shift cover , the bottom cover( two clips)and the knob.
With a removal trim tool , carefully start removing the console from the storage box.
Then , once you are close to the shift , it has two clips with a flat head screws , carefully release one side and lift the shift cover, and then release the other side . Bingo , you have removed the center console .
It took me 4 hours to do this. And around 150 bucks.
But i think the results are worthy 😁

Nice job! I would love to attempt this but I will probably never get around to doing it.

No it won't fit the cupholder from the S550 is bigger you can only use the wires light.
Can you share what the wire looks like? I’m thinking maybe I can find it somewhere else without having to buy an s550 cupholder

I ordered the cup holder from Tasca, does it come with the led light ring in it or is that from the S550? Thanks for the info

Amazing. Hoping someone like @Diode Dynamics makes a custom solution for this in the S650. I feel like there is a market

Yes it does come with the light ring
The RGB wires you will have to get it from a S550 cupholder .

Looks great! There is definitely a possibility for a nice aftermarket solution now.
