Cup Holders in our Camaro's

Us Silly American's and Cup Holders... We were just on a road trip for the Memorial Day Weekend and the Cup Holders behind my MN6 Shifter were useless. Part of my trip included a stop at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY. Their gift shop has lots of cool stuff including Add on Cup Holders for C5 and C6 Vettes. I got excited and tried them in the Camaro, but they don't fit :(

So I started looking and I am excited that it seems the same company is coming out with them for our 5th Gen Camaro's!!

http://www.rickscamaros.com/catalogs...holder&x=0&y=0

I can't wait to get some, probably the back seat and a single for the front passenger. What do you guys think? They look cool, and if I can fit a water bottle and not hit my elbow on it, ob block me from hitting fourth and sixth, I'm in!!!

Single


Double


Back Seat


Edit: I just noticed the pictures show an Auto, so maybe this affects you guys too?

Yeah, thanks for posting that. Shifting with something in the factory cup holder isn't ideal.

Sickening how much the aftermarket charges for some pretty simple stuff.

You think the cup holders suck in the new Camaro? You should see how shallow the one cup holder is in a C5 Corvette and it still gets in the way when shifting gears(6 speed man.). Not to mention if you have a large cup, it covers up the A/C controls and part of the radio. I bought a "Travel Buddy" double cup holder for my C5 and it fits great. I'll probably be buying one of the double cup holders for the rear seat in the Camaro since they didn't put any back there. Nice find and page saved, Thanks.

Ricks has always been a bit too fond on some of their stuff when it comes to pricing.:(

That's the ONE good thing about those awful Filtrete water bottles; the top of it is concave so that if I put it in the rear cup holder, it's like a little arm rest.



The bottles suck, otherwise. They're top heavy, you really have to crank down the lids to keep them from leaking, making them VERY hard to get off when you want to wash them, put them together and knock one a little bit and they all go down like dominoes, etc. But that little concave bit at the top when you pop the top closed. Perfect for an arm rest. :p

I agree, pricing may not be ideal... maybe in time it will come down, but I since I see the need for it, I thought I'd share. I plan to get some, but it works with the way I plan to use my camaro long term.

Im glad to see the aftermarket finally address this problem. As for the price, can't blame them. They probably made a small production run for the first wave of product, and need to re-coop their investment for the molds, tooling, etc.

I personally will order the rear seat dual cup holders, as I do not like how the side ones will warp the center console plastic.

Not for shifting since we basically *don't* however its easy to bump into them if you don't keep both hands on the wheel which I think is safe in saying most of us don't.

Plus not having one in the backseat sucks as I like to keep wipes readily available for dust and fingerprint etc cleanup, so thanks for this info!

So, I got a set of all 3! The first production models of each!

They look great and match the interior well, the back seat unit is awesome, GM Should have made the car this way, but since they didn't I'm glad that a US Manufacturer is filling the gap. From my discussions with the manufacturer these are 100% Made in the USA :flag2: including the Molds!

We are only going to keep one of the Front Seat Units, the other will be a prize at the upcoming Detroit 5th Gen Camaro Club Meeting (once my wife decides which she likes better for the way she uses the footwell).

They fit well and feel pretty solid with something in them. Here are some pictures of them and installed. The front seat units seem to compress the carpet more than they bend the plastic.

Here is what you are waiting for... pictures!!

Like em, but for that kind of scratch they can kiss...... My 6 inch coffee thermos fits quite nice and isn't in the way of shifting.

Sorry buddy but i had to rant a bit there. It's getting old the mark up we're seeing on anything and everything Camaro.

My Camaro is my daily driver, so I do drink in my Camaro... as for eating, nope...

I don't see how some stated it looks OEM, the plastic doesn't match at all... it's a shinier and more "black" (darker) looking plastic.

Not saying I won't get one, because I plan on it, but it doesn't look OEM to me at all...

50 bones is a bit steep but I'm glad that someone fixed another gm problem. I was shocked when I noticed there were no cupholders in the back seat. Not that anyone wants to sit back there but on the few occasion that I do have someone there and they have a drink I am worried the entire trip that it is going to spill. And the ones in the front are absolutely stupid for a manual transmission.

The power lock button location is foolish and the usb port not being standard when lesser base model cars have it standard are some other gripes I have. Everytime I notice stupid things like this I am reminded of why gm needed a bailout.

I love where my power lock button is, keeps a lot of people from trying the hanger trick to unlock my car...
