to everyone for their comments. I've put a lot into these and I really
do appreciate hearing back from you.
been using my newest mod for a while now, and I love it. My wife thinks
it's the first thing I've added to my car (and that list is long and
illustrious) that actually adds value to it. When not holding a cup,
you don't know it's there. When you do need it, it works, just as
you want it to."

Excerpted from his web
page about the cup holders. I'm amazed that someone
would take their time to do this. Thanks! ]
just bought the third one made [for the Z4] of "The Ultimate
Cuphholder", and have used
it for about three weeks and two thousand miles. I must say it is
*perfect* for my needs. I live in gods country where we have very
twisty roads, no traffic, and no speed limits, and I take advantage
of it. No spills so far. It keeps the cup out of the way, is very
deep, it is adjustable, and is removable in literally 3 seconds. One
of the best things is it sits on the
floor, and since I have the rubber floor mats even in a catastrophe
it would spill only onto the mats. Nothing close to a catastrophe
yet. And it holds the cup just about right where I would want it.
my way down to the family reunion at the beach house last week, I
stopped by the HSR historic races at VIR to help my buddy who races
a Cobra. As soon as I got there, they announced open parade laps for
charity, so I joined. This is my home track, so I can drive it pretty
aggressively even in a parade lap (slow down in the straights, catch
up in the fun parts).
Afterwards, I noticed that I had forgotten to take out the almost
full cup of coffee in the cupholder, and yet I hadn't spilled a drop.
Race-track tested cupholder! This one gets the checkered flag!"

been using two of your cupholders in my BMW 530 and just wanted to
let you know that they were as great as you indicated on your web
site. They are also much safer to use on the road than anything else
I have tried which obviously includes the factory jokes. Great job."

mounting the second cupholder in my other car, I temporarily put it
in our airplane. As it is a rather unconventional plane, you may want
to add the photo (attached) to your website.
mounting the cupholder in a rocket-powered aircraft, we recommend
it go aft of the liquid oxygen tank pressure gauge. This may limit
elevator down travel, but you have to keep your priorities straight."
lol! Thanks Dan! ; )

for the great cup holders. I was a little concerned that they wouldnt
work for me since I am only 53 and drive with my seat
pretty far forward compared to my 6 husband. But they work just
fine and theyre great. They installed in a snap and now I can
stop juggling my water bottle on my 1hour+ commutes!! Love them, love
them, love them!!!!!
welcome to use my comments! You've developed a fabulous product!!!
I don't think you can imagine how much SAFER I'm feeling now that
I'm not juggling my drink in my lap or worrying that the next turn
is going to cause my drink to go tipping over on the console!!!."

I am. What a great product. Packing was superb and instructions were
perfect; able to install in seconds. Very nice!"

creation was an immediate hit with my wife in her 2001 525i. She hasn't
been this excited about a toy since the one I gave her with batteries.

cupholders are great! Thanks!"

cupholders hold everything perfectly, and make my life so much easier.
I use both of them constantly. They are elegant, solid, and exactly
what I wanted. The hand-made quality is unrivaled; I wouldnt
change a thing. Thank you also for a great shopping experience, quick
delivery, and an excellent web site. You run a fantastic business."

recieved and installed (in minutes) my two new cupholders for my 540i.
They are totally amazing. I picked up two large Carribou coffee's
on Mothers Day, drove like Mario Andretti for 8 miles on back roads,
and to my chagrin, not one drop of coffee on either floor mat. Thank

are Ultimate! THANKS MIKE!
I tried the silver one on the passenger-side of my E30 and:
It fits my large 1 liter bottles PERFECTLY
- It stays completely out of the way while still being within reach
- Passengers won't mind it at all. In fact, they'll probably use it..."

cupholder and the travel mug arrived today, snow notwithstanding.
The quality of the holder is even better in person than as pictured
on your web site. It took me all of 10 seconds to install and I am
ready to go! The mug is also of amazingly high quality for such a
good price. I will break it in the AM when I stop at my coffee place
on the way to the office. My wife is already eyeing the mug with envy
so I may be ordering another one soon. The quality of your work is
really impressive. In this Walmart age it is refreshing to know that
individual entrepeneurs are still out there producing quality products.
You really do great work and I am very appreciative of the quality
product and the excellent customer service that
you have provided. All the best."

was skeptical, but they're great. It's out of the way and light-years
better than the lousy stock cupholders. The only trick is getting
the nerve up to stuff the metal tab up under the console, but once
that's done, they work great."

i did receive the last cupholder, but my BMW dealer damaged it while
working on the car. I have to say the holder is an excellent accessory
to the car and I thank you for making them. Installation was very
easy. I look forward to receiving it soon. Last time it took 4 days!!

cupholders. Should you like an 'old-fart testimonial', just let me

been meaning to get back with you concerning my experience with your
work wonderfully. I usually take a thermos of coffee with me on the
road. The particular brand I use has a screw on top which, when removed,
is the cup. It's small and fits perfectly into the cup holder provided
on the sport wagon. The problem for me has been what to do with the
thermos and your product takes care of that beautifully.
were easy to install and add a small yet necessary touch to the enjoyment
of my vehicle.
should buy your idea, make you a rich man and satisfy their customers'
read a comment on the BMW Forum concerning the issue of the cheap
and impractical cup holders. One guy wrote in that it was a minor
issue because the car is designed for fast speeds and when you are
traveling down the autobahn at 120 miles per, you have no business
reaching for something to drink.
can't help but agree with the author. However, the reality is a little
different. I bought the BMW wagon for a few different reasons than
smokin' down the autobahn. I live in NYC and my concerns are safety
for my family and a completely comfortable ride in a dependable automobile.
It is a luxury item and your product is a reasonable remedy for this
one particular design flaw.
hat is off to you.

I needed for the 5er. Mounts quick and easy, it's out of the way,

I'll be trying it out later this evening... thanks again for the great
service (truthful and accurate!)."

at it again....just ordered 2 more for a customer and my sister-in
law. I've been using mine for a few weeks now, I bought a 525iT for
myself. I have it mounted on the passenger side as my wife pulls the
seat too far forward when she drives. Anyway, it works fine, holding
water bottles, coffee cups and soda without problem.
am offering the Ultimate cupholder to my 5er customers now, showing
them your site right here at my desk. Great solution to a design shortcoming
in the Ultimate Driving Machine."

the holders last week and meant to let you know then. Thanks, they
work great. Ya gotta market these babies at BMW dealerships....good
C., BMW E39 5 Series, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
the goods yesterday, just as you said. Looks great, works great, wife
likes it, what more could I want (other an M5 to go with it, but you're
probably fresh out of those). Very professional job. "

just got the cupholders - they are WAY better than the alternatives.
Well worth the wait."
T. P., BMW E39 5 Series, Montana
the way, the cupholders are spectacular. They fit perfectly, hold
everything from a wine glass (precariously) to a large McDonalds shake
without spilling a drop and without being in my way at all.
you for the sensational design and thank you for your patience. If
you need a testimonial, just ask and I'll tell anybody the same I've
told you. They are great."
K., BMW E39 5 Series, Illinois
received the two cupholders and installed them yesterday - perfect
fit, superior fit and finish, excellent solution. Many thanks."
M., BMW E39 5 Series, New York
been using one of the cupholders, and it's really great. The shape
seems to be perfect, it holds about everything from soup to mugs to
water bottles really well. It seems to be a perfect solution to a
cupholder in the 540 as it also frees up space where the original
cupholders are to put my phone and other things. I can now keep my
water bottles stored in the holder rather than rolling around on the
floor or the seat. You should really think about marketing this to
BMW parts. The quality is excellent and it's really superior to any
other cupholder I've seen."
H., E39 540i, California
cup holders worked great on our vacation. Thank you for expediting
I've showed the cup-holder to a few dealers. Everyone was impressed.
I told them to visit your web site http://www.ultimatecupholders.com
and contact you.
In addition, I had a major issue that had to be raised to customer
relations at BMW headquarters. While looking at my car one of the
senior managers asked what those SS items were. I showed then the
cup holders and once again they were amazed that such as simple device
could beat what their German Engineers "hacked" on. They
now know your website."
W. B., 2002 530i, Ottowa, Ontario, Canada
got back from a road trip with the 740 and the cupholders were here
waiting for me. I took them out to the garage and within 2 minutes
had them installed. They fit fine - took a couple seconds to figure
out how to get them under the carpet, but once I got past that, they
went in smooth.
So far I'm thrilled, it looks like these will hold real cups and keep
them accessible but out of the way, not blocking any controls. Thanks
for taking the time to test fit and build these - I think it's a great
