The MR2 (SW20) community is strong and always pushing forward with new grass-roots innovation. We are proud to continue that tradition by solving an age-old problem with this chassis. CUP HOLDERS! The amount of different ideas on trying to solve this problem over the years has been monumental. We would like to throw our hat in the ring and say, we have an option for you.
We utilized the cup holder from an Audi/VW due to its popup nature but also it's slimline figure needed to make it fit within the factory MR2 vent. Also, we needed a cup holder you could easily replace if you ever had to. Relying on AutoExtrude for the replacement cup holders is not a viable solution. You should be able to get replacements on your own without some proprietary cup holder. There is a lot of support for these cup holders all over the market and at a cost-effective price.
We thought it would be very important to keep your vent as functional as can be and with some added creature comforts. You'll find that the vent we made holds the cup holder magazine and has little slots around it to allow for airflow.
The cup holder insert is made like many of our products out of ASA plastic. ASA is a plastic that is superior to ABS. It can withstand water, heat, UV-light and cold. It's made for years of continuous use without failure. We have tested the insert as much as possible but if for whatever reason you have ANY issue, we will replace it free of cost for up to two years.
Cup Holder Size:
We have tested all sorts of different cups. Some bottles, all small and medium-size cups from most fast-food chains function. A 7-Eleven Big Gulp wouldn't fit. It's the common things out there and nothing too crazy. This is a creature comfort and it's going to be a lot better than trying to hold your drink between your legs, shift and push a clutch pedal in.
LHD or RHD:
Single or Dual Cup Holders:
Small Caveat, if you need the cup holder to fit the passenger side vent, you will have to use a heat gun to put a small dent into the air-duct to make the necessary room. I will include instructions to make this easy for you. This is NOT something that will permanently affect your vehicle in anyway!
You will receive a vent cup holder assembly. That is the VW/Audi Cup Holder, our vent insert we make to make it all work and some brief instructions.
When is the Group Buy Going to be over?:
- End of January. Group Buy Price will stop. If we do not receive 80% of the people who put their names down. I will refund everyone and move onto another chassis. Your participation is highly encouraged!
- February 1st. Bulk order for the Audi/VW Cup Holders. These will take about 30 days to get to me.
- March 1st. Shipping to customers.
Time Frame To Delivery:
Please read this carefully. I'm a one man show with a day job. I will do my best to do this as quickly and efficiently as possible. I can only make about 3-4 a day and I have to wait for the bulk order of cup holders to come in from the manufacture. I will NOT update your specific order. I will keep the group posted on updates as a whole, publicly (Facebook Business Page / Instagram / Facebook MR2 Groups). I don't have time to respond to a couple hundred people updates on a weekly basis. Everyone will receive a tracking number the moment it leaves my shop in MARCH 2019. A tracking number will be sent to the same place you received your receipt when you placed your order.
Note #1: We will not be selling the cup holder insert without the cup holder itself. We offer a complete solution to our customer base. We like to control all variables.
Note #2: As mentioned above, you will need a heat gun to dent in the air duct to make the passenger side cup holder work. This is NOT a permanent procedure that will ruin the performance of anything. It is merely a minor modification.
