    Cup holders

    Hi all I want to fit some cup holders in my car seen some genuine ones on eBay but they all say not for cars with center arm rests but can't see why I can just leave the arm rest up if I am using it in the morning.
    Question is can I still fit these in my car and has anyone ever got the ones of eBay as there about 10 cheaper than from BMW

    As always thanks to anyone who contributes

    I had one in my E46 with an armrest. The rest doesn't interfere if you go 'regular'

    Genuine BMW ones will seat a 330ml can with the arm rest down and of course your 500ml can of Special Brew with the arm rest up

    Sorry can't find the pic I was searchig for Jim try www.bmminiparts.com - Home as they are genuine BMW parts but can be much cheaper if in stock

    Sorry to revive an old thread - but anyone know where to get these from any cheaper than 50!?

    I think that 50 is scandalous just for somewhere to stick my coffee!
