lol, even had the same photo idea as me :P My beer wasn't that much better though, uni budget applied back then :(

Homad I'm afraid I'm more of an Itsuki than a Bunta

Oh, here's a pic of the actual unit:

And here's where you cut (in red, below). I used the "roof" to kind of half pinch the cupholders when sliding in/out, adds a little resistance. Also I used two of the four screws shown in the above pic, the two screws closer to the front. They merely pinched & gripped the cupholders in place.

I hate my EF's cupholders, they're so crap, the lid forces cups to lean forwards, the holder mechanism slips downwards, don't even THINK about a large thickshake from Maccas... :P

EF and EL cup holders Are easily fixed with a soldering iron. I believe snap found this out. I haven't had any probs scince.

MadMatt also showed a few of us SA blokes how to fix this on a cruise using a hairpin, not permanent but it stays in there and holds them up.
