Thanks a lot I actually looked on realoem but couldn't find this. I only found a retrofit one.

Are these commonly carried at dealers?

An official BMW dealership can get any part you want as long as you have the part number and as long as the part is still in stock in Germoney.

Called a local BMW dealer and they said those part numbers don't show up in the system.

The generic term for those is "speednuts", at least where I come from. You can generally buy them at well-stocked hardware stores and auto stores. the thread is usually for a "gauge" screw eg 8G or something like that. The original BMW part might be a bit more specific (and metric) but if you just want something that works I'd look in a general autoparts store in the section that has miscellaneous dash and trim clips etc. Get the screws at the same time.

Why bother? Just replace it with this one, OE looking and much better than the crappy stock one:

Where was that when I had my E39?

I do still have my "ultimate cupholder" if anyone is interested.

No.. Replace it with the ones cut from Aluminium! Not cast, CNC'd. They will never break again!!! They're about 150 bucks though..

I rarely ever drink in my car anyways and if I do then it's bottled water. I just had to get the cup holders because I couldn't stand looking at the gap where they used to be. I paid $60 for Febi cup holders and broke them trying to install them. I just jammed it in there screwed them in and never touching them again.
