well you deffo have the right cup holder - so you don't have any trim at all? is the standard black trim not a clip on trim like the other stuff then? I just swapped my wood trim for ally and it all went smoothly (apart from passenger handles - tough to get off!)
someone else entirely more knowledgeable than I will probably be on with the facts soon!! 
erm, I popped a flat bladed screwdriver in each end and the whole cupholder popped out. It has a metal clip on each end which are attached to the trim. You take these clips off, then take the trim off. Then its Mr Haynes manual to put back on - Assembly is the opposite of dis-assembly!
OK here is the answer..... If you want to fit R32 alu trim on your 1.4, you DEFINITELY need to buy a new radio cage for about ?30... I am 100% sure as I need to do this on my 1.6 soon. It is a pain to fit too, but foxy has a guide on his webpage,
Yeah but no but yeah but... sod it, need to find somebody with alu trim & have a look I think
The key thing is, I don't know how the alu trim attaches.... if it just goes on to these metal clippy prong things (technical term), then everything's ok. If if goes onto a plate or similar, that's where the cage comes in.
If you are just changing the cup holder face trim and NO other trim then it's just a straight swap. The cage is only required when you change the side trim and the OBD cover. The cup holder trim unclips at the side of the cup holder via the black plastic bits that the meatl prongs are attached to. I you get the ali cup holder facia all will become clear.
