BA-BF cup holder is adjustable, you remove the inserts for bigger size drinks. Or turn it around for really tall ones.

OK! you can disassemble half your console and re-notch the arms inside or you can go to officeworks and buy two clips and away you go! This was my first mod - bit lame but I've never lost a drink since! Will hold 600ml Pepsi Max and new slimmer 600ml Coke as well!

Made me LOL :mrgreen:

Anyway, you guys are doing it wrong. The cupholder is not for two cups. It's for holding a single 600mL milk carton wedged in the centre. Fits perfect, never spills. This way you have room beside the carton for your phone etc. 8-)

It took me a while to realize that; I too am still finding Coca-Cola under the console... :oops:

Twice I've had passengers spill drinks (Coke and coffee) all over my console/floor, and thus I've banned everybody from using the cupholders.
Phones/wallets, sure. Drinks, no.

I like the bulldog clip idea though!! haha.

FG cup holders FTW.

Bottles, cans, maccas cups. No spillage, and sits beautifully.

After loosing a Maccas Tall Flat White all over the passenger footwell last week, yesterday I did the cup holder mod that fairlane6970 suggested with the paper clips.

Thanks fairlane6970
