It always irritated me a bit that the cupholders in my 2005 Impreza were just bare plastic without any rubber mats, and when I got myself a 2006 XT a while back I found it had the same cupholders with the low rent look. So I carefully measured the bottom part of the cupholders and made a template for cutting out nice mats out of rubber or plastic. I've attached the template in case anybody else wants to use it. It should also fit the Imprezas from that era.

I did the same, first with an automotive rubber mat, then I used an old mouse pad-looks much better.

Awesome! Thanks!  I have been planning to do it for a while,  but haven't gotten around to it yet...

Also did something similar on my Impreza. Added a vertical bit as well so it was like a cup. Used anti-slip mat which was nice and thin. I use the cupholder for my house keys, so very annoying with them rattling against the plastic.
 
Nice job on the template :-)
