Hey, I just became a proud BMW owner last weekend. I bought a 1998 318i Sedan (E36). I love driving it, I love the look of it, the one thing I don't love...the cup holders. They don't hold a can of Diet Coke or a McDonald's sweet tea, which are my drinks of choice.
I searched this forum and googled and found some aftermarket options, but nothing really satifactory, as I don't want a drink holder down at my feet, I don't want lights in my cup holders , and I don't want to hang anything from my window. Is there a replacement console with larger or more secure cup holders?
I went to an RV Outlet store yesterday and they had cupholder inserts, that fit my 318i console perfectly! I will send pictures when I get back from vacation in two weeks. Bonus, they look like they look OEM to me.
I know it sounds werid, but go to the hardware store and use a pvc pipe reducer you can shave it down or go as big as you want , put a bean (sand ) bag in the bottom to keep it there I know alot of people that do that. Other than that drive the bmw with spirit and drink afterwards.
