    I've just made a cardboard mock up that I'll turn into an alumium model this week with the potential to be mass produced in plastic.

    I see so not specific to a taxi but a universal cup holder. I am a little more imaginative than that and I don't think anyone who has an X250 cab would find that usefull even if there was a suitable place to screw it.
    Mine will involve no screws or adhesive and easily mounted and dismounted and hold two cups

    My imagination is fine thanks and I find mine very useful indeed. Fits perfectly on my right hand side and easy to reach. Very firm hold on any size cup or can.

    I should perhaps qualify that by saying I have an A class with suitable mounting place. You never know someone else might find the item useful too.

    Sorry I didn't mean your imagination rather the universal cup holder's designer. Mine is specific to X250 cabs or dashboards not one size fits all.

    I have an X250 cab and see no need for cup holders in that area of the motorhome.
    If we want a drink while traveling we just pull over somewhere and move into the lounge area in comfort .... surely one of the benefits of a motorhome.
