Hey Cat...just to add my .02......the problems that I was havin with my cup spiller, before the console swap, was that the spiller wasn't high enough on the cup. I'm not sure if this was just mine or not but just thought I'd throw that in there......

Same, here, only things the spiller will hold are shorter things like pop cans, anything else is too high and becomes top heavy during turns making it spill.

maybe someone can find a way to mod it to make it taller, and so that it doesn't collapse as easy? That's a problem I have with mine. I have a cup in there, and the cup-spiller just collapses back down, leaving nothing to hold the cup.

Hey thats a good idea. But as for trying to make use of the holder......I spent about 1 1/2 weeks trying to figure out a way to get the thing to lock, extend higher, tilt only one direction, and even just stay put without moving....nothing works. Spring loaded just makes it flip out and snap the wrong direction, and vise versus. Lengthening the track just makes it easier to tip because there is no base anyways. SO I just bought a new one after destroying the original in a high speed fling out the window.

Hehe, you could JB Weld the thing up and in place so it doesn't move. Of course that defeats the purpose of the original design, but if you use it a lot then you wont care because you always have it up anyway.

It's an abbreviation for Soda Pop, which is the correct term for soft drinks such as Pepsi/etc. It is derived from Soda Water which is a carbonated water which then has a syrup product added to it to create soft drinks like Pepsi/ect, and then the name Soda Pop is shortened/abbreviated to Pop. Thus Soda Pop or it's shortened version Pop are the correct terms for soft drinks such as Pepsi/etc.

Cola and all other names for Soft Drinks such as Pepsi/etc are just abbreviations of the names companies used for their products, thus are slang terms and not appropriate english.

;)

:tongue:

Really? Weird. Mine when I fold it up and try to put it back down in the console, I have to whack it with my fist. Instead of click un-locking nicely, it feels like its trying to jam on something. I'm about 70% sure its going to break really soon.

I think I can shed some light on why yours and my cup spiller are difficult to put back into the folded position in the dash. ... It is due to all the pop (ie: Dew) and coffee (ie: D&D) caught in the track that are holding the spiller in its upright position.

I've never heard anyone call a pop a "soda" in my life, and I'm 22. Seems like soda would be the 50 yr old thing to say what with all those boomers going to the ice cream parlors.... soda.... just sounds crazy all I can think of is someone with a minnesota accent saying it so-o-o-da .... fargo flashback..... *shudders*

Lol at pop, the first time I heard that was in fl in the military. A guy from Mich called it that. I had the dumbest look on my face when I heard him call it pop. What I don't get is why is every type of soda called pop?? M. Dew, Pepsi, Coke, Dr. Pepper, everything is pop!? WTF is that about, lol. Just to set the record straight, its not pop its soda;)
