Mein Auto: 2011 X5 35I
2011 X5 Front Cupholder

UGHHH! I hate to even post this. My front cupholder tabs that hold cups securely broke. The tabs no long hold anything. I brought it to my LBMW dealer. In a nutshell, they said it will cost $800 to order new front cupholders plus labor. They have to pull apart the front center console in order to get into it. Mechanic said its not worth it. Has anyone had this problem and come up with any fix? I noticed the X3's have these nice plastic inserts that appear to work. Would they fit? Does anyone have any suggestions so I dont have my coffee in the am spill over when I take a hard turn? So annoying....

2011 model - are you still under warranty? This should be covered if so.

DIY if ur able to. I believe if you search the forum and maybe either xoutpost and comments ull be able to find the instructions.

Idk bout the x3 insert. If you can find the part from say a friends vehicle or say a friend at the service bay at the dealer go ahead.

You could possibly Go to a different dealer and try to see if they can be nice and do it as a warranty repair.

Finally you could buy a cup holder from say autozone or similar

Many options hope one works!
