Hey guys, 

 

So I've been looking all over the forums, and can't seem to find anything on this subject.

 

My question is, does anyone else find that the front cup holders are too big, and not deep enough to hold water bottles (regular 16oz)? When I have 2 in the front, every time I corner or accelerate, the bottles either lean over, or fly out all together. Is there any kind of insert that someone is using to get a snug fit?

Without running out to the garage.

The two front cup holders are two different sizes yes?

Yes, they are different depths.  I notice that as well.

Yes, the back one sits higher than the front, but it's also the circumference that's an issue. To wide for a regular water bottle, so even if you have your bottle in the front one, it still moves around.

Assuming you are talking about a typical 500ml bottle

 

You can slip a Koozie over them and they easily store in the armrest or doornets. Or do as I do and keep it in the sunglass stow in the overhead to keep it from rattling!

Top speed runs are killers no matter how well the car is set up.
