Had to make and post this. Sorry if it re-ignites another holy war.

*I should also mention, I've had a friend break one before and I still love them anyways.

I actually dont mind them. Definitely better then E39 cup holders. I had cups flying out of there like crazy.

One story that really sticks out with the E39 is when i made a left turn and protein shake cup tips out of the cup holder and fully empties in between passenger seat and center console. Picture that mess.

I don't get the dislike.

They are out of the way when not in use. They are small. They should be.

Hence the word "cup".

Yeah, they don't get nasty like normal cup holders. When they're not in use they're hidden from view and I think it keeps the cockpit looking clean. I've always been a fan. Just need to be extra careful with them.

Not bad, you just have to be careful what size drinks you get.

Hate em . they can be a little bigger for a normal 16 ounce container. But in essence it helps me avoid spillage

After having lived in Germany, I can understand the cup holders. I don't usually see Germans taking drinks everywhere and normal size of drinks is much smaller than ours.

I've come to appreciate mine more than before, but they're just not designed to carry 32 ounce cups, for example, so I tend to buy smaller drinks than before.

I personally like how they look in the cabin but their functionality is shit.

I only find it a pain when I have a passenger, they tend to catch or knock them with their knees. Perfectly out of my way, nice reach distance and with euro drink volumes even the biggest are fine.

Are we talking about M-Sport cup holders or non-M-sport cup holders?

So Germans don't drink water? Weirdos.

The passenger one is dumb because it's in the way but the one for the driver is awesome!

What's a cup holder? You guys drink in your cars??

Just kidding... I rarely used them, but they worked. I wasn't crazy about the location and neither was any passenger. They were an interesting idea but ultimately not the best design. Now if BMW would just start putting the window switches on the center console again - where they belong in a BMW!
