Cup holder doesn't hold cups tightly enough!

Ok, so first day on the road with my 2013 535i GT this week and I stopped to get a drink at a fast food place, put it in the cup holder, turned a corner (fairly gently I may add) and the drink tipped over in the holder.

The holder is fairly shallow and has no side bolster to grasp the cup. I know this seems like a silly thing to ask about but does anyone have any suggestions for an add-on to help prevent this from happening?

In our 2013, there is a little bolster in each holder. Just push the lever part sticking out toward the respective car door and the bolster will pop out into place. It helps a bit.

Thanks - that does help and I found them. I still think they are very shallow but we shall see how those little levers do!
