Those seem to be the only cups that fit unfortunately.
Mc Donald's actually taste better too.

Just installed this in my car today.
Just mock up right now but it's already awesome to have
Pulled from a e36 for $30

Perfect fit... looks like it belongs there... is that the whole console from the shifter back? or just the cupholder part of it?
Gotta love when a car maker makes a generational shift from one model to another but leaves enough the same that you can correct a previous generation's mistakes such as missing cupholders...
I know what I'm going to be trolling for next time I visit the wreckers...
