Not stupid, actually brilliant. And I still have it somewhere.

The Calypso drinks holder: I had it in the Astra and the Mazda. It's a drinks holder with a difference - it doesn't actually grip the can. Instead, the thing's all on a floating gimball which follows the momentum of the car. However you drive, it tilts the bottom of the can into the G-forces, keeping the drink inside the can and the can on the base. The can rocks around like a mad 'un, but it never falls over and never spills a drop.

Then I got my first Laguna, and there was nowhere to put it that was in convenient reach and didn't interfere with the instrumentation. With later Lagunas, I had the same problem but the airbags compounded the issue.
Currently in Horatio's garage:
2010 Laguna III Initiale.
