Where'd ya get that coin holder? I want to take mine out, and replace it with one of those. Or, have a flat plastic insert in there, and mount the coin holder under the arm-rest.

I always use bottles, so they never spill in the cup holders, and there nice and snug.

IMO, i like the 96-99. I had my share of the drinks in the door cupholder and had to clean out the inside of the thingy were you store stuff at in the door.

Those cupholders don't interfere with legroom, not even with a big gulp loaded. Not even in the slightest. My leg only OCCASIONALLY nudges a cup in a high-g turn.

Coinholder came from some podunk auto parts store. It'* the spring-loaded type. Quarters nickels dimes, and the pennies go in the ashtray.

It holds a big gulp. It opens up slightly. But it takes alot more effort to get it to open enough to dump one. It'* actually pretty well engineered for such a simple piece. The wider it opens, the more force it takes to do so. But it'* easy to slip a large drink in from the top.

A few members have seen these in action.

You're so right about the doors.... I learned that the hard way with a can of pepsi...

i have never spilled anything in my side ones. I like wills idea alot. Will that tape come off without marking the surface if you ever want it to?

2000+ is the WORST for cupholders, there are like 2 in the whole car.

Tape comes off just fine. It won't damage the vinyl at all. With these two holders, my car technically has 7 cupholders, but I don't use the two in the doors ever, and rarely use the one in the center console except to hold my GPS.

And let me re-iterate.....it DOES hold a big gulp with no problem whatsoever. And I don't even need to look down to put it back in.
