    They don't fit in cup holders, too big ;)

    and you can't unscrew the cup cap, then the lid and pour as you are driving :alien::alien:

    and too much content for a bladder capacity, making too many stops necessary :alien::alien:

    Oh no! What have you done - now I'm going to look up the wiring diagram for it, to see how cooling is done ... we know where that leads ... And I only just did the central cup holder:

    It will be a thermoeletric cooler (and heater when switched in reverse polarity), It will need a fair bit of space in the centre console to accommodate.

    For that money I would demand that all switches and buttons are also warmed to protect sensitive skin.
    Interesting that the ad states that the wheels and tyres are an optional extra at £895.
    What a crazy unbalanced world we live in!
