The cupholder solution for the 170's

I'm not familiar enough with the 171's to make this statement, but this will most definitely work with a 170. But now that I've customized the top of the armrest, I won't create the cupholder mod that I thought of. But it doesn't mean that YOU can't.

1. remove the armrest top [2 screws..no big deal]
2. measure out that space, width x depth x length including the bump in the front where the 2 little buttons are
3. get an inexpensive 3d printer
4. cad your specs with a )( latex divider for the cups in the middle of that box like configuration, and a 5mm lip for the top of the container
5. create the latex insert with the printer

At this point you just set it inside the arm rest and your cups/drinks can sit there no?

You could create it in any color latex your printer allowed. I haven't seen anything like it out there. It's just one idea I had.
