    Ive had this cup holder for a while now and it works well, originally designed to clip into a VW t4 ashtray. I clip it under the dash paper clip thingy (mine is the permanent fixed version that doesn't flip up) and use some double sided tape on the underside, hasn't budged in over a year. I got it from Just Campers

    I stuck the disc to the front for my sat nav to stick to but that doesn't work so well lol.

    Sorry but no way could I have cups sat on the top of the dash like that. The vans are desperate for a cup holder though !

    Great idea but as above I would worry about all the electrickery components below. :eek:

    I've got one cupholder opposite the gear lever but that's it, plus two slots for 2ltr bottles of water/pop but nothing to hold the cups needed? :mad: :LOL:

    I have searched endlessly for a pair of descent cup holders to fit the x250 cab and i have just gave up, Andy (Techno) had something in the pipeline but aint heard anything about them in a while - i am pretty sure they would be a good seller - just dont wanna be screwing holes into the dash or mounting anything on top of it either in case it went over the leccy bits underneath.

    Don't have a need to drink whilst driving never in a hurry to get anywhere so just stop and have a brew as previous posters.

    I screwed a couple of can holders to the cab doors (level with the air vents on the edge of the dash) that way they are easily reached but not in the way, they are wider than the standard ones so will take not only cans but the larger disposable coffee cups such as those from Waitrose.

    If you have a look on Ebay you can get ones that just hook over the car door trim so no holes/permanent fixing required, there are also ones that fold too.

    Yes 100% apparently if you have an airbag they are fixed, I've dismantled it in the past and its screwed in place

    The moral is of that is ... if you ain't sure it is 'capable' of moving don't give it a pull from the back!!! :X3:
