Ok I haven't had a bmw long, but I've had a few vehicles and driven over 10,000.....





What is the deal with the cup holders!?!? Obviously you are not in Seattle where it is overcast and depressing 300 days a year thus requiring coffee on a regular basis. On top of that you an rarely go more than 35 mph even on the freeway which is hardly "driving"

oh yeah

What's this american obsession with having cup holders in the car all about - Even Euro cars are trying to emulate now, every bloody flap you pull down or lid you lift there is a fking cup holder there. How can you throw a car round high speed bends with a cup of cawfee stuck in every one of the car's orifices?

PS - I don't know if the US e39 manual says different to the UK but mine says they are CAN holders not CUP holders - but then the germans are more likely to be driving around with a can of Heineken than a frappucino I guess.

after seeing a cup/can holder from a specialty site that someone had posted that was made from aluminum and cost $35, i saw this at my local parts store made by Bell. same principle tuck the toothed tongue in up under the console. I think they are actually designed to slip in along the the window groove and hang on the door.

I bought one tried it out on the drivers side. Removing the bell sticker was a bugger ended up peeling and then using wd 40 to disolve the glue and paper left behind. as you can see i bought another one for the passengers side and have yet to remove sticker.

That's just it I'm usually going about 25 mph in a straight line, I work right near Microsoft and the direction I go is apparently the one everyone uses. I've just never seen such disgust for a cupholder before.

The other thing is going around a corner I'd rather have it in a holder than in my hand or worse......between my legs!!

:

To each his own, I am still curious.. what is under there, is there a "better" way to remove that piece so I can at least look?
