On the '06 (and I think '05) the passenger's side cup holder has a horizontal slide mount instead of vertical. That way the cup holder will slide out when the seat is moved up into it.

That is correct! 03/04 and first of 05 had vertical slide mount so when moving seat forward "broke" cup bracket.

So GM changed in mid 05 (after they ran out of the 03/04 consoles) to horizontal slide much better, only spilled drink on carpet.

It is a modified BMW holder. The mod is very simple ( cut off part of the bracket that sticks out at 90 degrees, and then glue to a "Male" bracket that fits into either the stock bracket on the console, or a second female bracket located just a little closer to the rear of the car ( needed if you want to use dash cupholder at the same time, and have larger cups). I've also tried it, and you can mount two on the passenger side if should want to, one in the original position, and one a few inches rearward. The BMW holder is available on ebay, and the male and female brackets you can get from Mike in AZ.

Mike has the info, a prototype, and the tooling for gluing up the brackets at the right angle ( abut 10 degrees tilted). He is very busy, but if enough demand is there, I'm sure he can put this into production quickly.

Many different folks offering this on ebay, and maybe even Amazon.

ok, am I missing something? there's suppose to be cup holders beside the seat? well what are the things that slide out of the dash, looks like it might hold a 5 oz. cup. this is the only thing I've found that worked.
The cup holder on the passenger side and the change drawer on the driver side in the dash are standard. The folding cup holders for each side of the console were extra but the mounts were standard. The console units hold bigger cups.

Joe is that the other BMW cup holder?I like the looks of that one and wouldn't be too big of a pain to move to get into the console box. For less than ten bucks it might just do.
