i know the new Chrysler Sebring's have heated/cooled cup holders in them... i'd love to have that option!
I designed that cup, but not the mechanism that heat/cools it.

The mechanism is not very big.. you could modify a center console to hold it. I believe it draws 30amp and is operated by a peltia type of module.

Once they are out and a few have made it to junk yards I'll pick one up for my lightning.

Tell Bob or John that heated/Cooled cup holders were beyond their abilities. Then wait about 3-4 weeks for the blueprints/schematics.

LOL....seriously!!!

McD's coffee.......BLAH. If the truck was ever low on oil and I was in a bind and near a McD's....I'd just get a black coffee.....it's motor oil.

Tim Hortons is the ONLY coffee worth drinking, unless your stuck in a town that only has Coffee Time....then I pitty you.
