Just wondering if anyone has found any suitable aftermarket cup holders for the rear.

It is the only original accessory solution. Just why in German? Geography again? West Yorkshire is not exactly there. Also, there's a nicer Rear storage bag too, just in case.

It's a $500 option in Australia for that. Part of the ski loading option. I would have specced that if I was ordering a car but none of the cars available or coming had that.

The "through-loading system" (implying a two-part central rear backrest segment featuring the cup holders) is one of the cheapest options!

It's just mainly intended/advertised for those who wish to transport two passengers seated comfortably in the rear with long objects put between them. If you intend at most one rear passenger along with long objects, the basic two-segment rear seat backrest is just sufficient. I also read the three-segment rear seat backrest further compromised vehicle rigidity, affecting handling, FWIW.

Passengers in a properly driven BMW should need sinks rather than drinks!

There are only a few options cheaper than that and many (much) more expensive. That was what I meant. Cheese and wine? Well, I don't like cheese and I drink no wine but I would guess you can find a bottle of wine more expensive than that option. So not really much, probably. Think of how much cheese and wine you can buy for the price of the car (even without that option).

I love cheese but I don't drink wine. $500 would buy me a lot of cheese! Lol. But seriously it's a good option. If there is only one thing I would like to add to my car, it would be that. With two young kids it's definitely handy having the cupholders.
