Hi. my '97 540i was just totalled (by a toyota!) and i am looking to buy a
2003 530i. BUT in my 540i, I put in something like $280 in @$%@$%@
cupholders over the two years. Y'all know those cheapo plastic ones that
come out and then crack of a larger cup is placed there, and hell, they
don't even hold cups...good for cans of coke only. so they break and you
have to buy new ones for something like $58 a set.
What I am Wondering:
Has anyone figured out that if you make the SAME design, but in aluminum or
titanium instead of plastic, you won't be breaking them? Does anyone make
aftermarket cupholders that don't look jury-rigged? Something that SOLVES
the problem? For such a great car design (except the lack of rear seat
legroom), the cupholders are just poor design.
So, what are cupholder recommendations????
