Cupholders

I don't have a fancy car with adequate cup holders. And while I'm not prone to drinking or even carrying beverages in the car, there are times when I wish I had somewhere to put my fat guy jumbo chocolate shake on the way back from lunch.
I bought this little do-dad a couple years ago and never used it until today, so I thought I could offer a review.

As you can see it is very slanty. Had this been a soda, it probably would have spilled all over. It was pretty scary when driving a bit rough, but I never steadied it and it held pretty well although it moved about quite a bit. I won't bother posting the name and model as I'm sure there is something better out there.

What are y'all using?

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've been using a pair of Ultimate cupholders for a few years and they are excellent - best solution I've tried so far. I put them both on the passenger side to avoid any interference with my throttle leg.

Wedge cup holder



I use a seat wedge cup holder that works pretty well. It has a few downsides: 1. It takes up room on the passenger seat. 2. It is not anchored and I have had it tip a few times with larger drinks (32oz or more). It is very cheap though.

Certainly easier to put in than a coolant tank, for sure!

You might call it "thinking one side of the Box."
