Cup holder

I have one from Blackwatch for when I am alone and have 2 from S111 for when the wife comes along. I like both and are relatively cheap.:up:

You might also consider installing a loud exhaust to drown out the cupholder's screams.

Here you go:

Mini Mania has a great cup holder that slides under the mat and because it is made of some sort of fuzzy black substance it blends right in with the mats. This is helpful in avoiding ridicule from the "ANTI" crowd. I love mine - I can drink my starbucks on the way to the track and then slide it out when I get there. Plus it's cheap.

You can purchase the Lotus cup holder from any dealership. It will fit in your '05.
I have been to 3 dealers now (Miami, Jacksonville & Atlanta) and no one has a cup holder. I would really like to have the oem one but my chances of finding one are not looking good.

Build your own. There are two screws under the A/C controls that the Lotus cup holder happens to mount to. You can use those to mount a piece of aluminum and then a generic plastic one to that. This took me 45 minutes and $6 to accomplish. Some folks think mine is ugly, but you can probably spend a little extra time and money to make it look better. Mine is 9 months olds, and I use it 3 or 4 times a week.
