I would like a cupholder designed for wine or cocktail glasses that can clamp down on the base and stem. I hate it when I spill my martini every time I hit a pothole.

They have a car like that (I saw one yesterday BTW...although that's Boca for you):



Do you have $370,000?

no doubt I am quite a hazard while eating McDonald's vanilla cones while driving.

It's German snobbery, pure and simple. Even the most hardcore German car lovers would tell you that many things they include/exclude can only be chalked up to 'that's just the Germans for you'. NOBODY likes it but we deal with it.

And since when does having cupholders in a vehicle automatically mean you're drinking while driving? There's a million uses for them.

I use one of my cup holders to hold the gate opener. The other is almost always empty... just like nearly every other storage device in my car. I think I've got the gate opener, the manual, registration and insurance paperwork, little notebook, pen, tire pressure gauge, ipod (stashed away out of sight since its connected via Apline's Fullspeed), and uh... floor mats. My car is devoid of any kitchen appliances.

Sometimes I take my cell phone out of my pocket and put it in the other cup holder.

The round shape of the cup holder seems unsuitable for most objects. I, however, use it to hold my lightsaber.
