I'd buy one, but liquids are not allowed in the MINI...I'd die of thirst before I stain the upholstery :P

Does it attach somehow or just sit in the original cupholder? Any chance the weight of a drink could cause it to come out?

Got mine today and they are great!!!!!!





Had to get two, we road trip too much and need to cup space.

So much better then the OEM option.



They just fit super snug in the existing cup holder.

Yah, I was the first person to get one when Dave finished the first set. Well, that was because I was picking up the whole order for friends.

This cup holder truely is far better than the factory one I had. I've since removed the MiniFini one I had. Dave's Cupholders are built soooo well. The
fitment is perfect and they rest on the carpeted console lip. No drinks are bobbling around like before. It also looks much nicer and will last.

Thanks Dave!!! I love mine!

$120 over the life of the car is not that much

So are these made for pre 2007 Coopers? I have an '08 and it will fall out with a drink in it. Not much bigger than stock anyhow.

+1 - I just buy a 12oz can instead a 20 bottle, fits perfect; the coffee 'cup' goes in the center/back :dunno: - to each their own I guess...

Too many parts left to buy that make it go faster , but good luck!

I think they should have the rubber "fingers" to prevent narrower cups from sliding around and possibly tipping. I'm also curious as to exactly how it secures into the factory cup holder (if the answer is double-sided tape or velcro, I would most decidedly NOT be interested...at any price). Either way, count me among those who'd be hoping for a somewhat more "elegant" solution, if I were to dump $120 on a cup holder.

I am wondering this also. Can you just verify how it fits into the existing cup holder and stays in place.
Thanks

The outside of the smaller tube is cnc machined to be a really tight fit into the factory cup holder, you have to press it in very firmly, there is no chance of it moving or sliding or coming loose.

Dave

Are they still $100 + $20 shipping?

Cost of living increase, WHAT cost of living INCREASE?
A friend tried to take food and energy out of his cost of living like the gov. does.
He’s out of the hospital after a couple of bags of saline solution.

Will you ship 2 for $20?

Thanks
ab
