Mein Auto: 2001 Z3 3.0
2001 Z3 cup holders

I'm the new owner of a 2001 Z3 and the cup holders are to small for most any coffee cup/can etc. Any easy remedies?? I've looked all over for a small based cup that will fit but no luck to this date.
Thank You in advance!
Cheers

LeatherZ has the best stock-ish cup holders, but I think they hold the same size cup as stock. I bought the Z4 cup holders from UltimateCupHolders.com and modified them with some stainless-steel feet to fit the Z3, but you specifically requested an easy remedy.
The UltimateCupHolder for the Z3 has been "coming soon" for years.

Mein Auto: 1999 M Coupe
One of my winter projects is getting a small piece of steel pipe the same OD as a 12 oz soda can and welding a pipe with an ID that will hold a 20 oz bottle then powder coating the whole thing black. I have the Leather Z armrest and love that part, but the cup holder will still only hold 12 oz cans.
