Drink in Cup Holders + Manual= Weird shifting

I absolutely love my new Camaro, but just one complaint. As I began driving it everyday and started to come across everyday things you do in the car I have discovered that the cup holders and having a manual do not get along if you have anything taller than a can of soda in it. You find your self with your are all jacked up in a weird position trying to shift over even a normal 20 ounce. Not that it is a huge deal. I just wish they could be deeper but I understand the tranny is down there. You know it's a good car when the only thing that is just slightest inconvenience is the cup holders Just wondering what other manual owners think

I read about this complaint in the suggestions for disciples thread:

I don't own yet, but did notice during my test drive that this would be an issue.

YEah that is what I have been doing. I just have the bottle in the passenger seat or next to me in the seat. I dont eat in the car, but when I go through a drive through and my passenger or I order a meal that comes with a giant drink it is like shifting over a wall! Ha but hey!..I'll survive! I'm driving a new maro!

I actually use my son's booster seat w/cup holder for my cup holder instead of the factory cup holder. Unless it is a 12 oz. can, it is a pain in the @ss to shift..

So far every stick I've owned treated the cup holders as an after thought when it comes to manual drivers. I just look at it as a way to practice my flexibility. It helps when you need to get to those hard to reach places while working on your car. lol

Here's a DIY for hassle free drink holders. Will work in any late model year Camaro.



Note: Fat guy optional

How about we get rid of that cup holder....The factory should have offered this as a delete option.

Found it on EBay. The cover is great while using the shifter or if you just want to hide your change or you I-pod. Great seller to deal with, check it out....

I only use it for my cellphone and wallet. No point keeping a drink there. The one time I had a 16 ouncer shifting was incredibly odd. and after the run to wendy's my forearm was super sticky and.
