    Another huge thumbs up for GEARSWITCH. I recently noticed that the cup holder I bought from them in 2015 had broken. It hasn't had much use, so I reached out to Gearswitch, to let them know where it failed, in case others had failed in the same location. Not only did they let me know they'd improved the design, but also reminded me of the lifetime warranty. Received my TOTALLY FREE replacement yesterday. That's customer service!

    Here's my cupholder solution. Nothing as cool as the 3d printed versions, but it works--

    I used a cup holder insert for a GMC Yukon ($9.45 on eBay), an old piece of scrap wood and some lateral thinking. The wood piece is sized for the center console pocket and press fits into place. I bolted the wood piece to the cupholder insert and everything stays in place nicely.

    will an E36 console fit the E30? It has cupholders.


    Both e36 and e46 will, they donít look very good where it meets the shifter surround.

    I recently started selling very affordable 3D printed cupholders that come in 3 different sizes to suit your needs. They are a press fit into the center console pocket, no tape or screws required.

    $50 to $65 Canadian depending on the model chosen

    Here's some pictures:

    Got a Gearswitch cupholder recently after doing some research. Design wise, its awesome and by far the best choice. I have a 1.5L Nalgene that I take with me everywhere that fits in the front holder and the rear holder gets used for coffee every once in a while. Needed to use all 5 of the silicone dots to fit snugly, but its in there nice and tight.

    There is however a major area that I think needs attention, and that is the finish. These are 3D printed and it is OBVIOUS. None of the pictures I have seen are zoomed in close enough to show the texture of surface, but it appears to be printed by a mid quality 3D printer, which doesnt have the resolution to make it truly smooth. Just seems very cheap to me, especially considering the $100+ price.

    Would definitely recommend this product.

    Can't wait for the weather to cool down enough for a drive in the 'vert while enjoying a cold drink. Best of all, I get to remove the OEM accessory cup holder that's been attached to the door map pocket and always knocking against my leg.

    Your interior is beautiful! Thanks for posting the pictures and for the kind words!

    I'm a big fan of my sfgadgetguy one, only downside is it doesn't hold super big stuff. The looks really match the interior well, though, and it holds pretty much everything I use on a regular basis.

    Though included with the package was some 3M double sided tape dots the cupholder fit perfectly in my center console without them.

    Fit a (root)beer bottle just fine, my klean canteen, amongst other things.

    Great product, great seller.
    Nice cant wait to get mine!
