no, I mean the Driving Necklace, by using a spill-prove cupholder that hangs from a necklace on the driver's neck (straw optional) in front of the chest (or on the neck of the front passenger when consent is sought and given, a longer straw in such case is required, dual- straw design optional for both driver and passenger)...Alternatively, the cup with optional straw can be placed right under the rear-view mirror where some people put on an ugly pair of dices and Lord knows what...

the cupholders (and eve further from me to pick on you), but I've seen this mentioned a lot and I have yet to understand what exactly is the problem with the cupholders ? Why don't they work ? Is it that they melt down, they have a rough idle, they need upgraded (lowering) springs or they need bigger wheels ?

There's no place in that car for one. (Maybe in the rear..) I have yet to see a manual car with a great cupholder that pleases everyone and doesn't block access to anything.

understands that some people need a cupholder, but they should also put up with some inconveniences

Has anyone found a cupholder solution that works well for E34's (I have a 535i 5 speed). I've checked the archives, but am not sure if (a) the auto flip-up ones are any good; (b) the "figure 8" model sold by the dealer for around $30 is any good (seems like it would get in the way for the passenger); (c) there's a good, cheap solution from Autozone or some other place.

Thanks in advance.
