Well, I wasn't totally sold on the billet ones just yet. I just found a new OEM part online and asked them for the best price and they said $105 shipped. 3 days later I got it. If the new billet cup holder were chrome or black I might have bought one. I found several USED ones here for $100+shipping, but for $5 more and free shipping I got a new one.

Glad you found the OE, but just curious, where were you going to mount that huge fold-up beverage holder?

So, for for $45 more you could have had a billet aluminum one that would never break like the OEM POS.

I got a used polished billet one. It's just lovely, and the action is really nice too (even has a tiny magnet to keep it closed). My factory one wasn't broken, but I replaced it anyway.

I use a roll of duct tape on the floor in front of the seat. Every cup fits in it, and stays put.

Sorry, I'm trying to build up a spares haul as big as yours! (Actually, my goal is to have one just 10% of yours :))

Mine cup holder was broke when I bought the car. I ordered the lifetime guarantee billet one from Santana Interiors to replace it with.

My goal is to be featured on car hoarders, but with only one car.:devil:

Yeah, Green Dragon is buried beneath spare parts . . . with one particularly pissed wife tapping her foot behind it.

Actually, she no longer allows me to mod her car . .. a position I fail to understand.

I wasn't sold on the OP's find for a cupholder. Until I read that it includes THREE screws. Well, that tipped it in for me.

If anyone is interested I have a spare the rear glove box I guess you would call it, so if you are hoarding parts this one is available.
