Test drove a used Gen 1 today that had a power outlet flap instead of a cigarette lighter, and a cubbyhole instead of the ashtray.

Anyone know where I can get the cubby? Planning on buying a Gen 2 and I want to throw away the ashtray and cigarette lighter, permanently. I never plan to smoke in the car, or let anyone else do so. I'll replace the cigarette lighter with a plug-in 12V emergency light, but have no idea where to look for the non-smoker cubby.

This would be something you'd custom make. Depending on how good you are with your hands and creating things the possiblity is endless. On ideas, why not install a power inverter behind there and run a household plug in and just build a delete box type thing. I like the ash try as it's a good place to store a cell phone when being charged and/or loose change. You could quite possibly build a simple cover out of fiberglass.

The ashtray was gone in my car when I got it. I bought a brand spanking new one from Subaru and its a great place to store more stuff.

i would look on subarupartsforyou.com or subarugenuineparts.com (or similar online dealer) and look at ''accessories'' like roof rack baskets and other subaru stuff.. i bought a used one for my late 90s outback. i don't know the ''new'' part name or number but they are out there.
