Does anyone know where to buy an additional cup holder to fill the third slot since we only get 2 to begin with?

Your dealer parts department.

I think the third spot is just optional for the passenger. Do all the cars only have 2 holders from the factory?

Mine only came with 2 holders. I'd have to be REALLY thirsty to need 3. ;)

Same as Rando. I use the one on the tunnel to hold my sunglasses.

You can order them through Fiat or Mazda but I believe they are around $200. Not kidding. The 3rd spot, forward of the shifter, is actually perfect for the driver.

True that. Also, that forward spot encroaches enough into the passenger area that it actually replaces the passenger...

Really creates that much of a lack in passenger leg.. or thigh room??
If I don't point it out to my passenger, they don't complain. People expect a sports car to be cramped. It's part of the charm.

I have the passenger one by the shifter and the driver one in its slot. It's more of a visual thing that I do not like the way the empty slot looks.

Really? $200? That's a ripoff for a small piece of plastic.

Get a $5 bicycle water bottle cage and mount it with a couple sheet metal screws.

Check out post #6. JF received only 2 cup holders but his build sheet said his car was shipped with 3... Before you shell out $200 check to make sure it isn't missing. My build sheet showed only 2 cup holders. Why some would get 3 and others would get 2 I will never know.

Bonus fact: Looking for my 3rd cup holder is the reason I tracked down my build sheet in the first place...

I always liked those cup holders that mount in between the window and door panel. Best of all they are cheap and can likely be found at walmart, any auto parts stores, maybe even gas stations.
