Adding A Cupholder
By Jesda Gulati (later additions by Wes Stinson)
after almost a year of searching and pondering, I've found a solution
for the cupholder issue.
First, here's pics:
XM tuner, followed by the cupholder in the closed position.
XM tuner, followed by the cupholder in the open position. It has a
spring-actuated lip to adjust to different sizes. Also, it has a drip
tray underneath to avoid spillage.
Next, I'm going to order two for the back seat arm rest.
Cost: $17 Shipped USPS Priority, available at ultimatecupholders.com.
Called the "Fischer" folding cupholder. You can also get it
on eBay for $16 shipped.
The plastic feels surprisingly durable, and you can have it mount to a
horizontal or vertical surface.
3M extra strength double sided mounting tape is what I used to mount
my XM tuner and cupholder. The cupholder came with rails and screws
but I wasn't interested in drilling. $3 at Wal-Mart for a small roll.
It holds surprisingly well, and removes cleanly.

These are very nice, especially if you do not like cluttering up your
center console with this, and possibly spilling on vital
components. I have heard of the airbag computer short circuiting
causing the airbags to deploy, because of spilled things. These
even offer stretching capabilities, while still holding the
drink. They will easily hold the 32oz drinks. More
examples can be found at http://www.ultimatecupholders.com/containers.html
IMPORTANT: It is highly recommended that you line the center
console with a waterproof cellophane or plastic material. Thousands of
dollars in expensive electronics are stored underneath, and its
important to protect them from spills.
