Custom Cup Holder

Hi,
So this weekend I've decided to try and make a custom cup holder for my Boxster. My first attempt wasn't very good, so I ended up emailing Roadster Solutions, because they used to make a nice Boxster cup holder. They emailed me back but included a picture of a second design I had never seen before. It looks perfect in my opinion, but they no longer make it. I was wondering if anyone has any other pictures of it, so I can try and duplicate it. Or if you have one and want to sell it...
Thanks!

Seriously, just buy 2 of these...



www.ultimatecupholders.com

$45 for 2 is a little spendy but they are adjustable and hold bigger bottles/mugs and are very nice quality. They don't look like a JCWhitney or PepBoys add-on. Plus, you don't risk knocking them over whenever you or someone else gets in/out, etc.

If you decide to go with these I have two of them I'll sell for $40 shipped to your door.

My concern with the ultimate cup holder is that it could slide from side to side.

Jack, I might be interested, but why are you selling them? (Never mind, I saw your other post, too bad you had to part with your Boxster)

I can tell you that once you get them in place, they don't move. It's a snug fit... I really liked mine. I just didn't see a reason to give them to the Audi dealer.

My concern with them is that although they will fit fine when I'm in the car, when my wife is in the car, she has to move the Recaro seat up quite a bit and I think it would hit.

You can slide them forward and backwards to just the spot you want them. Once in place, they do not move.
