I have this. It's virgin aluminum and not anodized. It fits a big black 20oz bottle of coke easily. The criss-cross G-string is deep enough to cradle the longest of bottles without spillage. The edges were a little sharp to the touch at first, but it smoothes out over use. I kinda like it sharp, it feels raw. It slides in and out easy, but not too easy where it'll slip out accidently when pounding the pavement. It comes with a rubber sleeve if you want protection. But I like it el-naturale - bare aluminum. There's no drilling necessary. If I recall, there was one larger hole and one smaller hole, it will let you mount it easily with your screwdriver. It's pretty stiff when it sticks out, it doesn't flop around if it's not empty. After your done, just tuck it away.
Ok now get your mind out of the gutter.
ORE is nice, but pricey and double is ridiculous. You don't need two cupholders in a lotus unless 1. your passenger is not your spouse/significant other or 2. Your spouse is having an outbreak.
OEM looks nice, but is more form than function, and $$$. All other options (tennis ball darth crap, suction cup, center console, etc) sucks ass.
Tony's cupholder is best bang for the buck.
