It's very hard to drive a stick shift while holding a drink at the same time. I have tried it several times and it just doesn't work for me. And being an old beetle it has no cup holder. For a while I tried using one of those paper cup holders you can get at KFC. It still doesn't work very well unless you get a small drink. I have spilled sprite several times in my car. It makes a sticky mess. I really needed a cup holder, but I just had more important things to but than one of those floor consoles or the plug and chug drink holder that plugs into the ash tray. But while I was buying oil at Autozone a sollution presented itself. I found a product be Bell. It is a cup holder that fits inside the window. The best par was it was only $2. I figured if it didn't work I'd only be out $2, and it did work. I'm actually quite pleased with it. A great fix for the problem. So if you need a cup holder, I would recommend this for a try. What solutions have you guys found.
