Hello, I would like to know if anyone has a fix for the lack of cup holders in the gls. I found these on amazon, but I don't want to screw my dash. Any ideas?

Spillmaster Euro Junior, FTW!
2nd to none!!! Mine's secured with a screw. They also come with velcro too, which can be used up by the clock on the dash, although the slope of the windshield limits the height of the drink you can put into it. May not work in this exact location with a d/r shifter but will work somewhere...

I mounted one (from an Impreza) in my Brat a while ago. There are more pics at http://www.ultimates...php?albumid=198.

Had one that mounted in the window jamb that was from Autozone or something back in the day but don't have access to the car nor pics so sorry. Ones that hang from the door are ok but not sturdy for anything more than a 20oz and thats pushin it. Like the one that everyones posted pics of on the center console and the Impreza one is sweet.

I jam my cup between the ebrake and the passenger's seat. A little tight now that I have OBS seats, but still works.

TA DA! Custom made in Mahogany. In place of the ash tray.

Not GL but it might inspire you.

Nice Wooden Cup Holder...

I Like it, but I Don't Believe the GL's Dashboard will have enough space...

kind of suprising how shallow a cup holder needs to be to work..

Walmart sells 4 door window cupholders for about 2 bucks. I had some
but i think i lost them, guess i have to buy more

I have had the idea of salvaging the cupholder piece that fits in the ashtray of a GRAND AM, and drilling with a hole saw on the top of the passenger dash, and using that as a cup holder. it would work for 12 oz cans, but fountain drinks may interfere with the windshuiled.

Definitely can be done, since there is plenty of hollow space in the dash
