WTB: Cupholder for 2003-2004 986

Looking for one of these without the typical broken tab. Everyone for sale on eBay right now is either cracked or missing the end piece. Anyone got a nice one laying around?

I'm a purist. I've been on a quest to fix any little broken part I come across. Cupholder works fine. It just bugs me to see a broken piece.

What is the "typical broken tab"? I replaced mine because one of the "C" pieces that folds down to accommodate different cup diameters broke off from the outermost cupholder. Not sure if between mine and yours you could make one complete good unit, or if you don't care about the piece broken in mine. Once mine broke, and I replaced it, I bought the Suncoast armrest insert and haven't used the factory cupholder since!

This is where mine broke and where 90% of them on eBay are also broken.

Mine is cracked, but not yet broken so I don't use it. No drinking or eating in the Porsche.

caveat

I have one but.... it is for RHD vehicle. It'll still work in your car (I had it in mine for a while), just gets awful close to the steering wheel which might end up bugging you more than the missing piece.

PM me if you're interested

That part is in perfect shape on mine, not sure if it's possible or how easy it would be to remove and replace that broken piece on yours.
