Shelly BMW wants $52 for OEM E39 Touring rear cup holders. Even after the BMW CCA 20% discount, that's $40+. Does anyone sell this part for less?

TIA,
Mark

$32 at my local dealer (MA), you can try Crevier or Pacific BMW, they usually have lower prices, but only worth it if you purchase a few more items to save shipping cost

Tan,

I just got off the phone with Crev, they want $57. Ouch.

Mark, you need to talk to Vaheh at Crevier! Either that or ask for Internet parts. It'll be a LOT less than that 57 figure.

Wow that's good information - I have a broken cup holder in the back - I'll replace it with that little tray thing, it has to be cheaper. I don't like having food/drinks in the car anyway ;)

You might also try some used parts dealers, ones that specialize in BMWs - you might be able to score one cheap that way (though they seem to break easily!)

Ah yes, that's a good idea. The part is cheaper and it also discourages beverages in the back. I paid $7 for that a few years ago. I don't use it, but I keep thinking it's perfect for a small pack of tissues or a little cleaning cloth for the car. And it won't break!

Tyrone/Pete,

What little tray thing? Post a pic, maybe... or a link? I don't allow food or drinks in my car either, it just bugs me that it's broken. Thanks guys :)

If you go to this page: http://members.roadfly.com/Agent99/armrest.htm and scroll down to the first picture under installation, where the tray is being removed, you get an idea of what it looks like.

Thanks, Pete. I'll price the tray tomorrow - it looks like a good replacement for the cupholders.

Please post up your findings...maybe I will do the same. I think a tray is more useful anyway.

Hi Oscswa :) ,

That's a pretty good price: $35 (tax cause I'm in CA + shipping), but I could avoid the eBay gamble and get an OEM part for $10 more. That being said, If I do get the cupholder and not the tray, I'll see where the bidding is on the item you posted and make a decision then. Thanks for the link - I didn't think of checking eBay!

Hey Mark,

Try emailing the guy and ask him if he can do a buy it now price. Better yet I need 2 sets (one for me and a buddy), ask him if you buy 3 sets will he give it to you at a cheaper price. I can PayPal you the money if he says yes, just let me know.

Hi Guys,

I spoke with Vaheh at Crevier (thanks Tyrone :) ), and he said $32 for one, or $30 for 3 :thumbup: . Ocsawa, if you want two, let me know and we'll work something out.

Oddly enough, I added cupholders as my POS E39 came without them. But, being an American in Finland, I had to have them. :eeps:

And oddly enough, you cannot order either just front or rear cupholders; they are a set, priced at 92 EUR.

My three year old, has now broken the rear cupholders twice, making me wish that I had just never had the rear ones installed.

For now, they are closed shut with black gaf tape.

I thought about leaving the rear cupholders as they were, but for $30 I may as well replace them. What does POS stand for?

:p I don't have rear cupholders, the E39 cupholders are a joke. I would not place an empty paper cup in the front cupholders.:eek:

Yeah. The rears do suck. But I really have not had any trouble with the fronts, other than (depending on what is being held in them), they get in the way of the HVAC controls.

If I was drinking a Mickey's Big Mouth and driving, then I suppose there would not be any problem.

:eeps: :eek:
