    Default Citroen c5 x7 drinks holder.

    Love the car but the minor annoyance of practically NO usable drinks holders when travelling can cause lots of unkind remarks about the car and lots of critisism. Never mind the super ride,great economy etc. etc. The lack of the holders can be a source of frustration.

    I would like to show you a prototype I have made to remedy the problem.

    Consists of.---- 1 old hard plastic tray.
    2 plastic pipe joiners.
    plumbers pipe cement.
    5 velcro stick on pads.

    Please someone tell me how to load photos from an iMac onto this forum.

    Hi Tassie c5,
    you should be able to add images to this site with no problems, from any smart or not so smart device. As long as your photos are JPG files you should be able to do it. You can add photos one at a time or in a group. The insert image ikon is in the top bar , third from the right. Click on it and follow the prompts.

    The upload package should resize them, having said that you can use irfanview to size them approximately to save a long upload time.

    Have they come out as file numbers or photos? They show up as file numbers on the forum. When I go to edit they appear as photos

    I don't know what the issue with cup holders is. Better to concentrate on driving and when you need a coffee, stop at a nice cafe and then you can have cake too. You will enjoy the diving and the coffee much better that way

    I reckon that its the french thinking safety, cause if your not looking for your cup of coffee your concentrating on the road.

    You latte drinkers-and-drivers may want bigger and better cupholders for your addiction, but what about me - my poison is a shot of espresso. It'd just drop straight through. (Actually like Greg C I have never felt the need for a cupholder).

    My now 50km drive to work each day is enough for me to slowly consume my travel mug of (real) coffee I make just before I leave home. It then provides the benefit to the team that I am caffeinated and semi-human.

    So who hasn't read their owners manual then ? And haven't noticed the folded drink holder in the front console?

    Just saying.

    Yeah the completely useless one inside the armrest. A location for storage of other bits and pieces.

    What committee thought of that?

    Just sayin'

    In the meantime you can fit two 750ml bottles of wine in each of the door pockets of a C4 Picasso.

    I reckon a "hookah" with some good quality weed and four long breathing pipes (two longer for the rear passengers) is the go.

    Definately gets you to the top of the class for something unique. Certainly differentiates you from the Ford Territory mob.

    You shouldn't drink and drive, even an energy drink can make you overly excited on the road. However a calming puff of the weed can calm you down, slow you down and is a perfect cure for road rage.

    A forged driver's licence with a photo of Bob Marley on it is a good conversation opener at the Breathalyser test. "Oops officer, that's my original driver's licence. Here this is my current one". [If it doesn't open the conversation, it certainly opens up the paddy wagon rear door].
