I went ahead and bought the $80 TEC one from BavAuto. Expensive, but perfect OEM-like fit and finish, and works really well. Even on those occasions when I hit my drink with my elbow while shifting, it doesn't spill!

well, i bought them for 1.97 (with 5% MD tax) for set of 4 in Walmart.
Put only 1 on driver's side. So far no complaints at all, though i'm not used to it yet.
I guess my future complaint will be the ease of use, since you really have to get used to the location of holder to put the drink back in, since you can't see where the holder is at.
