Mounted an adjustable cupholder on top of the drivers side Bose
speaker on my 91 20vtq. It works ok, but amen about slamming the door with a
cup of coffee in it.
Agreed- I wouldn't get much use out of a cupholder on the roads I drove
on in Germany- switch backs, big drops, too much fun to think about drinking
Also it's no surprise that Germans don't like distractions while
driving- many are so lawabiding if it was 4am and no cars were on the road
and a crosswalk light said "don't walk" they wouldn't! No offense to the
German fans -I have realtives there and can't wait to return. Prosit!
