No more spilt drinks!

So an update - 2,800 miles in and I am pleased to confirm that the more and more this engine opens up it is an absolute beast!

Anyway, one small issue was resolved today. I have been struggling with the over generous size of the cup holders in the front. I know, I know, not a massive issue but enough to cause me to do some research. Now in the UK I am yet to find a cup that is large enough to fit in the cup holder without space around the sides and its far too big for a can of drink, especially those energy ones that I need to keep me going.

So after some research on this site I ordered PART NUMBER: B51. - 334351 Insert for 22.34 which is the Insert for one of the Special Packs for the X3.

What I hear you ask? An X3 accessory? Well, it's basically an insert that sits in the Cup Holders that looks pretty and makes the gap smaller. So, the question I had was it going to fit without stopping the lovely cover from closing. The answer? Success!!

Thought I would post this trivial, but important! matter for fellow UK drivers!

I hate the cup holders in my M5. What was your original cup holder looked like? I like what you got there.

I wish I could afford an M6 and have large cup holder issues... lol

Nice resolution! Looks factory.

Hell one of my two cup holders is conveniently placed under the arm rest, so nothing can even fit at all.
