When I am carrying more than one drink (almost always unflavored water bottles), the current bottle will ride in the front cup holder, and the still-sealed bottle will ride in the back in the middle. Not once in a few thousand miles of travel has the back bottle (which is always full and unopened) tipped out. It is very stable -- if weird-looking.
The "2011 M3 Series Owners Manual with iDrive" book has cupholders on pages 116 and 117. (see attached screen prints.)
