Okay why in the hell is there a cupholer under my armrest, the only thing i can fit under there is a can. i guess the fast food industry did not research bmw's before choosing its beverage serving techniques. if there are two ppl in my car and we get food, theres no where to put a second drink... this angers me, anyone else feel this way??

Ummm...I have 2 cupholders in the same location where yours is. You mean you have 2 but only 1 is accessible (when the armrest is in the "down" position)?

the germans don't really want to put cupholders in their cars. they're really all about driving and concentrating on the road.

putting food/drink containers in their cars is merely a concession to us Americans ;)

i heard that somewhere

Cars like BMWs shouldn't come equipped with cupholders, they're the ultimate driving machine..

I live on a steady diet of fast food and soda. I'm always on the go and I need at least 1 cupholder for sure. That diet (and the lack of water, excercise and sleep) will be the death of me for sure and I'll probably go at a young age if not just keel over soon. Funny, when I mention this at work, the first question from EVERYONE's mouth is "So, when you die can I have your Bimmer?"

Anyways, my biggest problem with the cupholders is that they're just ugly. I need it so I don't complain. I do however, concentrate on driving first and only drink when its safe to do so.

My car has no cupholders (I have the eurotray with the phone in there).

I always buy those little bottles of water and coke.. Just close them again and you can lay them on the passengerseat next to you.. <- this only works when driving on the freeway.. In the city there is no way for the bottle to stay on the seat. :dunno:

Take a look Here , you can probably find a better cup holder that is made for you car. You can replace those cheezy cupholders at the same time.

This tray doesn't really cost this much does it? I believe I've read that some people have gotten it for perhaps $20?

I only allow drinks in my car, and they have to be closed. On emergencies (food run), I do allow food to be carried in my car, but never eaten. I remember I was giving my cousin and his friends a lift, and one his his friends was eating ice cream in the car (I didn't see him taking it in). I immediately stopped the car, and told him t get out and finish it or throw it away. No one messes up Stacy (my330i).
