I saw the pic of your "new" cover, Hans, and it looks like my old one - it has the catch for the latch extending from the lid. Those things were getting broken quite regularly (easy to catch a sleeve on and snap it off (ask me how I know)). When I finally decided I'd had enough of a non-latching console lid, that particular lid had been discontinued and superceded by a lid that had a reciever in it. I had to buy the box and the lid because, as Boosty surmised, they are NOT interchangable. It has worked flawlessly since (been 8 years or so now). A picture of mine won't do you any good I'm afraid.
Don't recall the cup holder being different, other than being a little more flexible. I didn't change mine because of the new lid, I changed it 'cause it broke.
