hi all i got made this for my mini a few week back and had a thread up in mini chat many of you may have seen this. during these two week i have modified my original design and it now will hold a McDonald's cup with out if falling over :) i am currently in the final stages of preparing the mold so i don't know the exact final selling price yet but will do very soon. the part will be finished in white gel coat so you can cover or paint to your own requirements.

Could you make something similar to cover the "wedge" on an automatic transmission gear selector? Might be interested in one if you can, and there could well be interest from other auto owners.

Yes, that's it. There's a few different types of selector, see this thread on AMR for pictures of them all: http://autominiregis...read=780&page=1

hi i don't think ill be able to do anything for the automatics as the mold would be very hard to construct around the selector and also the part where it tells you the gears. sorry for not being able to help

haha like you say your spoiling your car ;D , i don't like the centre console your foot usually rubs on the side of it when pressing down the clutch and they don't fit in my car my heater controls are too low. this is the reason i made this in the first place

I'm not a huge fan of McDonalds. Could you make me a custom one to hold a Burger King cup?

On a serious note, If you could create a mould that would fit a Metro that'd be great, I'd 100% be interested. Provided it was under 20 quid, which, of course we don't know yet.

I think the cups are the same. I had a really awful experience with a certain Big Mac meal after going to see the Inbetweeners movie, in fairness, I've never had a bad Mcdonalds before, they've all been pretty mediocre, as you'd expect... but this one, it was god damn awful. It got raised with the big bosses though... they promised it'd never happen again, I got a token that entitled me to a Free mcdonalds everyday this month and my money back. :) Ive not been back since though
