    Storage pocket in front of stick shift doesn't fit phone

    My previous car, an ST, had a useless storage pocket on the left side of the shifter, fit almost nothing. On the RS the storage area moved to in front of the shifter and is larger but still wont fit a smart phone. Phone still lives in the cup holder. Is there an aftermarket larger bezel for that pocket in the RS? Has anyone modified that area to be a bit larger?

    I keep chapstick there. Put it lengthways and it rolls annoyingly side to side with every turn. Put it width ways and it rolls out when I hit boost. Idiotic storage space

    Yes, apparently the advent of the smartphone caught Ford entirely off guard I have an idea of how to make a mount that can hook in the cupholder space, but I haven't had a chance to prototype it or look for existing ones yet.

    These seem to take larger phones and offer wireless charging too
