Is there a factory cupholder available for one of the slots in my 1990 900S?
Saw some stuff on ebay but I'm not sure if this will fit.

I figured it out. This is a good one for all of you who really can't live without a cupholder.
Go to the junkyard and find a 1986-1993 Ford taurus or Mercury sable. They have the same exact cup holder that the Saab 9000's came with. It is a cup/coin holder that pushes in and hides when not in use. Matches my 900's interior perfectly. It even has the 4 silly holes to put the removal tool into.
Then you can either remove your little tray in the lower portion of your console and simply slide the new cupholder in (if you don't mind the limited space and funny angle) or...
You can do what I did and relocate the radio to that lower spot, put the cup/coin holder in the old radio hole and have a really sweet looking setup that works well.
Hope this helps a few people that need to have a soda or coffee in the car at all times! If you need any specifics, e-mail me and I'll send you pics or whatever. email@example.com

Just got one from Ebay. You get used to these things in modern cars and having spent 6 hours cleaning seats and carpets recently, dont want to spill my mocha latte on the shagpile!!!
Have mine in the lower section but is a bit limited. Will definatly relocate to the upper rado slot when i finally replace my 16yr old sony stereo!!
