Cup holder hack.

Inspiration hit me today while repairing one of my pop out cup holders... again

My E92 doesn't really have a good place to put my iphone so I can see the screen if I am using it for say listening to music or having it give me directions.

I give you BMW my cell phone cup holder hack!

Lmao, cool attempt at being creative and all but why not just get a $10-$20 vent/dash mount...

Of all the places you could put a phone, sat inside the cupholder like this seems pretty mediocre.

This is perfectly viable I dont know why people are trying to give you shit

- vent mounts suck because in the wintertime it will over heat your phone. Usually you will want the phone on a primary vent closest to you which blocks airflow.
- people don't want to stick things to their dash and leave behind adhesive for a dash mount
- people hook up android tablets to the cupholder all the time, how is this any different

Wow this turned into a pissing party. Don't let that hold back your creativity OP. Congrats, esp if it didn't cost you a dime but your time. Little bit of burning on that cutout though yes?

But yeah, the cupholder thing exists. If you don't have CIC, then someone also made an aluminum holder that straddles between your front deck air vent (where the Logic7 speaker would be) and your vents (though I actually don't think the execution is that great).
