For the daily drivers - perfect mug

I thought I would spice up the forum a little bit.

Made by Aladdin, bought mine at target for $10. Made from recycled material, BPA free, 16 oz. They had a couple different colors, I went with poop brown.

Fits in the cup holder 100% perfectly and has a sealed top that doesn't leak.

Not to hijack your thread but do your cup holders stick when you try to open them? One of mine does and I don't know what the solution is to fix it. Yes I tried

BMW also makes mugs that fit the cupholders well. You won't have to settle for poop brown either!

Right on I have 2 of them one for coffee and one for water (on long trips). Often I use the second one for my passenger.

Keeps the coffee hot and the water nice and cold.

OP ... Nice cup I'm sure it does the same as the BMW cups ... Got mine with my previous and last M3 from my friendly dealer along with other goodies

I prefer the IV method. No mess and instant caffeine into the blood stream. It's the only way...

Ha I've seen these displayed at the local dealership. I never pay them much attention, just assumed that they cost $50+ like everything else there.

I should rename the thread "For the daily drivers on a budget - perfect mug"

Seems like an awful lot of weight to distribute above the cupholder area. With a full mug and quicker driving I'd be worried it would topple. Nice find though!

It fits so snug that it won't be going anywhere. I took a bouncy off ramp at 80 this morning with it 75% full, no issue. Plus the top is kinda hard to open, I've dropped it and the thing stayed sealed. I don't drink/eat in my car, just transportation of liquid in BMW safe containers. And this one comes with the cposk seal of approval .

Edit, I also think the camera angle is making it look bigger than it is.

Nice mug. My current coffee mug has flowers on it. This doesn't bother me though, because I am gay on most weekends.

Cool! Out of curiosity, what colors other than poop brown were available?

This won't happen with your mug, but be careful what you leave in your car when summer rolls around. This happened in 1 1/2 hours during in the middle of the day. Boom! Sticky all over. Lesson learned.

you have achieved the impossible, you've found the perfect mug that fits the M3 bracket but caters to our fat American liquid intake needs.

Next up is to find the Yeti and Loch Ness monsters

I think the BMW coffee coup would look better in your car don't you think? Having said that I think they should make a ///M coffee cup (let's start a poll
Besides it will keep your coffee hot and a cool drink nice and cold not too mention refreezing on a hot summer day Note also to open and close all you need to do is slide the opening in the top and it will never ever leak as long as you have it in the holder. As for the price ... I have no clue both where given to me. I think up here in Canada they are $25- plus tax.

Just to tease you I tool a pic just for you

Not only in summer also in winter ... once left a half case coke cans in my company car an M Class what a mess I found in the morning ... every can popped like a little bomb ... temperature dropped during the night to -15 C that night (glad I had the case in the back and the cover drawn still what a mess that was).

Lol...I never thought of the freezing issue. Probably because I'm in sunny CA.

...what has this forum come to.... coffee cups!

I'd go with a BMW one, too. No offense OP. I'd like to find a short one and maybe in carbon fiber (look) to blend in with the carbon trim and black dash.
