Eight days into ownership of my first Berlingo and i have resorted to this, Grrrrrrr
#1
Big Grin 
I'm a bit of a lover of coffee on my work commutes and already within eight days i have had a full cup rolling around the front cockpit four times !!
I have tried three insulated coffee mugs and still i can not get one to fit the center cup holder properly   Angry

I still can't quite believe in 2016 and running a 1.5 year old car i have had to resort in using a Plant Pot !!!!!!

Are we all having this problem ?

Has anybody found a mug that fits or can recommend one ? (Sorry, i'm fussy and don't want a handle)

Mine goes in my door pocket. Like someone previously said, the French quite obviously like a petit cafè whereas we like a decent mug of tea - or coffee in our case.

Have a look at the thread on fitting a cup holder in the hole below the air vent or failing that colour code the flower pot.
Are we there yet????? Huh

Come to think of it - I could put my travel mug in the pocket under my middle seat.

I'm slowly getting my head around that it must be the characteristics of owning a Berlingo ;-)

Try this idea for a cupholder. I copied this and use it every day in my van.

Flower pot seems a good enough idea for those who want to risk 3 points on their licence for drinking coffee while driving... The flowerpot also makes it nice & easy to put cup down if you need to use phone as well.  Big Grin

First you need to be stopped by one of those rare sights on our roads these days!

Mazda do an adapter from small cup holder to large for the MX5 and the Bongo. It does however look like a grey plant pot...
