Protien Shaker Bottle Recommendations

tldr: 28oz Sundesa Blender Bottle does not fit in F30, need recommendations


I used to have an Audi A4 with one of those pop out cup holders like the old E* series and I hated those cup holders. I've learned to steer with one hand and hold my cup with the other while turning hard, just so I don't spill

I just got a F30 2013 328i and seeing the cup holders, I thought they were a total upgrade. Until I tried to put my protein shaker bottle and realized they were too tall and are hitting the center console.

I've been using the same 28oz model "Sundesa Blender Bottle" for I think 10 years now (not the same exact bottle, I've bought multiples through out the years of the same model and replaced them every 2 to 3 years). I've tried a bunch of different brands before but this is the best I've tried so far, no leaks and no clumps.

I guess I'm looking to get a different brand/model and I was wondering if you guys have any suggestions. The 28oz Sundesa is 8.8 inches tall. I think the 20oz at 6 inches would fit, but I was looking for something around 26oz to 28oz. Any suggestions?

Interesting, these ones, right? Mine scrapes the lower part of the center console below the AC controls. Now the blender bottles I tried just now are brand new and arrived just yesterday, and this is the first time I've tried the new ones with the "Loop Top". Older ones didn't have that loop. Maybe older ones are a tad shorter and fits perfectly?

Most blender bottles aren't 28 oz. The 28oz are definitely quite a bit taller. I think I have both 20 and 24oz blender bottles that are a bit shorter. I can't think of anything that would work for you, if you give up height it will have to be thicker to fit the same amount of liquid.

I can live with slightly thicker shakes. I jump between brands but the Cellucor I have right now is saying like 7oz per serving, so I guess I'm way too watered down anyways for 28oz (I do not fill it to the brim though, and probably only drink 24ish oz).

The 24oz Blender Bottles sound like they might work. I didn't know there was an option for 24oz. Found them on Amazon, 7.9 inches tall. I think that full inch would work, plus I won't notice the 4oz anyways.

Link for the 24oz

I use optimum nutrition and generally use about 6oz of water per serving. 2 Servings fits easily and I rarely feel the need to triple up.

I like the free gnc ones.

Separately... I stopped doing protein shakes a bit back... I just find myself eating solid foods or high protein ice cream (halo, skinny cow) or caramel protein bars

Thanks guys. I had just put in an order for the 24 oz Blender Bottle Hawkeye recommended. If they're a no go, I'll try one of these.

Blender Bottle 24 oz was also a no go. It sits without hitting the bottom of the AC controls. But getting it in and out if not paying attention will still hit the bottom of the AC controls.

I'm switching to Blender Bottle 20oz.
