2012 E92 Rear Cupholder?

Wondering why the supplemental manual states that the coupe/convertible have the rear cupholders when clearly only the E93 has it. Did it come on previous years?

Nope, Only E93's have rear cup holders.

I think others may have it on the rear center armrest.....

It a one size fits all manual. There are a few errors like that in there.

Well not really since this is the supplemental manual for M3s only where it specifies Coupe/Convertible for this item. So def a misprint of facts.

You're not missing out. They're little more than a post-modernist invitation to beverage catastrophe.

In fact it's a little known bit of BMW trivia that the e9x design-team held a contest to determine who could create the more aesthetically pleasing yet functionally useless cup-holder and the backseat team won over the front-seat team by a hair.

I completely agree on the poor design, both front and back.

That is the only thing I can say that I HATE about this car! My 335 had the fold down center and cup holders popped out of the end. The M just has a stupid flimsy center cushion looking thing that just flops out. It looks VERY VERY cheap IMO. Dont even get me started!
