Cup holder recommendations?

Post by wrybread »

I need to come up with a better system for holding cups. The built-in one between the seats in my 2000 S70 is just too janky.

Has anyone found something that they've found works well in these cars?

I had a '98 V70 with the armrest cup holder; didn't like it but I lived with it. When I got my 850, and saw the window controls below the sweating water bottles or hot cups of coffee, I knew I needed to do something.

The sliding armrest cupholder/console cover in the 850/ 98-2000 70 series is not your only option. There is a relatively rare "plain" armrest door with no cupholder available for these cars. This gives you a slightly more stable cover (it engages the magnet in the center of the console while the other one does not), and eliminates the possibility that you will ever again be tempted to allow beverages to dangle precariously over your console. This is the first step...
