E36 Dual Cupholder
BMW engineers know how to make great cars, but it seems they have never used a cupholder in a car. Because of this, the E36 cupholders were an after thought and only put in the USA cars. They never seem to fit any real bottle or cup so we set out to create a solution. Sometimes having the cupholder so close to the shifter, it can be cumbersome and actually cause you to spill your drink. To overcome this, we designed a solution that allows your drinks to sit right behind the armrest.
These E36 dual cup holders are completely plug and play. To install, simply remove the stock rear ashtray, and install the cupholder. The E36 dual cupholder even uses the same two screws for installation.
- Two cupholders (diameter sizes up to 3.25")
- Pocket compartment for your phone, sunglasses, coins etc.
The cup holder is 3D printed PETG material (high temperature resistant compared to PLA, PLA will warp in hot climates).
Note: This design is recommended only for E36 center consoles with arm rests. We have not tested this on earlier cars that came without an armrest.
