Modifying Ultimate Cup Holder for Z3

Ultimate Cup Holders have been promising a version to fit the Z3 for years, but I got tired of waiting. I bought the model for the Z4 and installed a stainless-steel sheet-metal foot that slides under the floor mats to hold the cup holders in-place.

I made the passenger side large enough to accommodate a hole which the floor-mat anchor screws into, making a solid mount.

Since the driver's side must be adjusted forward and backward for my wife or me, I made that one with a much smaller foot, so it can be slid forward or backward.

On hot summer days, I can carry a water bottle on each side, and it stays unnoticed under my knee.

This is perfect....I knew I saved those mat mounts for something. Gonna try this exact same mod soon for my Z3, as I have 2 Ultimate Cup holders in my Z4 and love them.
