Bumping this old thread to put my company's offering in here, the GearSwitch E30 Cup Holder.

We just finished a successful pre-sales campaign, and now in production to fill those units. This is direct-digitally manufactured from carbon-fiber ABS composite in the USA and fits anything from Red Bull up to a Nalgene.

The pre-sale campaign is now completed, but we're still taking orders with a current 3-4 week queue from order to shipment. Happy to answer any questions here or via PM/e-mail. Cheers!

Received mine late last week. Aside from initially being impressed with the packaging (it was similar to the packaging on my old Nokia 8800 phone) the finish and quality of the product was top notch.

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.

+++1 for Gearswitch

Ordered the Gearswitch cup holder on May 26 and it arrived this week. It is awesome. Great construction, professional packaging. I used 2 of the 5 adhesive shims to get it to fit tightly in my center console.

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.

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.

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.

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:

Here's where you can buy them (through secure PayPal):

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