I might try putting a pair of dim red or amber LEDs under the lip of the center console door. Won't be as nice as lighting from above, but it'd light up the cup holders nicely, and more subtle than putting LEDs in the cup holders themselves.

I also might not. Depends on if I can find some more round tuits. ;-)
I was thinking tap into the mirror power and just put an led in the map light housing
