Post Cup holder solution for the 2013 335i convertible?

Has anyone developed a cup holder solution for the 2013 335i convertible? I had the pop-outs on a Z4 and a 328, and they break.
I'm thinking of modifying the center console

Don't put SUPER-GULPS in them? No-one needs 2 gallons of frosty Mountain Dew...

I've not seen any aftermarket cupholders specifically for the E9X range. Mine are still going strong after all this time. But I did purchase smaller travel mugs that fit nicely - so I'm not overloading them all the time.

They stink. They're total BS! Bouncy and spill prone, a reluctant concession to Marketing's checklist. Boo!!

These Contigo travel mugs fit like a glove, seriously... it's like they were made to measure. They seal perfectly between sips and have no leaks, and work for both hot and cold. Perfect for any lame E9X cupholders. You're welcome lol

My cup holders work fine. I'm pretty careful with my car and don't slam the doors or beat on the interior. I'm sure I could break a cup holder if I tried, but I go easy on them.
