I've not tried that one. From the picture it looks to be a 3D printed clone of the factory version with less trim and polish.

From new, the car should have included a movable cupholder from the factory (along with a cup-like smoker's ashtray). Was yours not shipped this way?

If you know someone with a 3D printer that can print ABS filament (common/cheap/easy PLA filament melts in a car during the summer), the .STL file is freely shared by the person who created the design:

There are also key fob holders, coin holders, sunglasses holders, and even phone mounts for the i3 free for the printing in Thingiverse.....

Bought one.

Rough finished. Elected not to leave any REVIEW. $30 versus almost $80 for BMW version...... it is worth it for me and my uses. It does fit. It does work as a cup holder (or utility point for other things......like iPad holder). So, it does what it says but it is overpriced for what i am getting.

cheaper than a BMW one.

Satisfied with purchase. And conflicted.

Out of curiosity, does it smell like pancake syrup? Trying to determine if it was printed using PLA filament, which *will* melt if left in a closed car in the summer.....

I ended up ordering 1 cup holder to be printed in Black ABS material as it should hold up better, the cost was $21 delivered to me.

I ordered it from here......
