cup holder s***s !

Has anyone improved on the cup holders on a '97 D90? I just experienced a tipover (of a drink that is), fortunately on the passenger side.

The existing holes are minimally effective, certainly very little with those large cups. It almost seems that there's something missing from mine.

There should be one that you can screw down or glue in place.

Wait, give it time, I know someone is going to respond and then Arthur is going to jump and scream psych!
Actually after reading my own post it comes across mean. I gotta take more time to write, I still think he is playing a trick, with the tip joke.

Well, yes, "psych" would be appropriate. There's nothing like spilling Coke all over the footwell and door panel. Except having to wolf down a Big Mac, cheeseburger and fries without a drink!

I hesitate to post this since cupholder discussions can get a man killed on some BBS's.

Check out http://www.griotsgarage.com/catalog....2530&SKU=77830

You can fasten it to the dash, the door top, just about anyplace for a cup holder. I've never had a problem with the stock cupholders though. They seem to hold a large McDonalds drink just fine. They hold a 20oz plastic bottle great as well. But mine are currently full of drill bits, nuts and bolts, a fuse or two, and some change.

Ron,

I had no idea that this issue was so...volatile. Surely I cannot be the only one whose drink has taken its own course and made a mess. It's the smaller cups that are generally a bit loose.

What I want is something that will fit into the existing hole but provide better latteral support. I'll probably end up glueing a couple of rubber cutouts left and right, about 1-2" higher than stock.

Adam Way in ownerbios defenderfriends had a link to a cool cupholder on his website.
I love how a bottle of water fits right in the dashboard. That leaves the beer-holders open for business. Unbelievable.
