ID:	386846 Any ideas out there for a second cup holder for us 6 Spd guys? I like to have a cup if water with my coffee.

Previously used a Ultimatecupholder in my E39. But they don't offer a F10 variant.

I was the first guy to take delivery that morning, at the Welt, & I could see the delivery specialists walking past my car on the way upstairs to start the day, each one did a quick double take - kinda cool.

My understanding from the owners manual is that there is a cheesy, E39-style flipout cup holder underneath the lid of the centre armrest.

I won't start on my opinions on open beverages in a vehicle.

There are fold out cupholders in the BACK seat armrest.....not the front.

Personally cupholders aren't a problem for me as I ban non-bottled drinks for passengers and for myself just a water bottle in my bike messenger bag "manpurse"

Most importantly I always mainline direct caffeine injections with this badboy before I leave the house:
