Center dash cup holders

I have the CD holders in the center console; are the pull out cup holders worthy of holding a Starbucks Grande coffee cup ?
I'm also thinking of a second cubby.

I'll use the cupholders for a can of soda or a small Timmies coffee, but anything too tall will be very tippy.

No! The first time you accelerate, you will have coffee all over the interior

Try these instead:

BMW Cup Holders, Porsche Cup Holders, Ultimate Cup Holder - Cupholders / Drink Holders for BMW 3 5 7 Series, Boxster 911 Z4 Mercedes Audi NSX other fine cars.

I get the Grande size and they work perfectly.

+1 on the Ultimate cup holder above. My insulated mug fits perfectly, unlike my '03 shallow holder in the dash.

I passed on the Porsche cup holders and put in an extra cubby, now I'm really glad I did, these cup holders look great!

These porsche cup holders are Shat and I think a cubby would be more practical
The amount of engineering that went into these and that someone high up approved them is bewildering
Then they turn around a put that ancient pain in the Arse intermittent wiper control in there
Oh ya IMSB
Book smart versus common logic
Thankfully they got the driving experience right
