Default and the next thing to break is....

And the next thing to break is.....my cupholder. Not that i ever use it anyway, but it still pisses me off. The round part just snapped off of the arm it swings on. It'* still haning on a little bit, and i'm debating whether to glue it back together, or cut the whole thing off.

Did you ever use that one? You do have the doors. Otherwise it'* be easy to find one cheap @ a junkyard or from someone parting out a 92-99 on the forums. Infact some new people are up right now.

Mine was broke when I bought the car, and I never replaced it because the holder on the door works, and doesn't get in the way of my arm. Same story with my bro'* 92 SE.

The new console cupholders are improved. Less brittle, more flexible, and removeable. And they're fairly cheap, even from the dealer. Mine was gone when I bought Greenzilla, and it was one of the first things I replaced. I don't use it much now, since I added two GOOD cupholders to the sides of the center console (even color-matched) and the rear has 2 stock holders as well. The only time I use the center flipout cupholder is if I have a 3rd passenger in the rear.

Chalk another one of us up. Mine was broke when i got my car too. It looks like it would just get in my way anyhow so i have no intensions of putting another one in. But most of the time i keep to my rule of no food or driks in the car and i have no problems

I wish I had a different type of cup holder. On my car I have to lift the armrest to reveal 2 cup holders that are not really convenient. Perhaps it would hold a pop can but if I go to a fast food place and get one of their drinks I have to watch out if I turn because it will fly out of the cup holder before I know it.
