it would get in the way of me spending a that amount of money on something useful.

Just found this in the Mini Mag.....................................
http://www.absmotors...cup-holder.html

Some competion................


hi, was looking at these the other week i cant see how they can hold anything there too shallow that McDonald's cup would be in your knee as soon as you set off and also it would block the heater controls wouldn't it?

Is it just me or would that get in the way of 1st and 3rd gear?


never thought of that bet its tight.

exactly its too shallow and the drink would either be on the carpet or all over you or the passenger side seat not good

hi the price of these will be above £50 but TBC at the moment as i still haven't been able to get the mould created as i have been busy with sixth form work and some carbon fibre work.

many thanks Liam
