    The one I had with my old car is just a little too big. You have to kind of jimmy it out.

    I bought a 2 pack at costco that were smaller, and now they are too small. They rattle around a bit in there.

    Anybody find a perfect one, that hopefully isn't too pricey?

    Here's my combo:
    24oz hydro flask: https://amzn.to/2I4aiy4
    with a neoprene sleeve: https://amzn.to/2ruFrj9

    I like that it fits snugly in the bottle holder in the door with no rattles, it removes easily, and I use the little pocket for random things, like the key card, while hiking, etc.

    Might consider this bottle line, one of which is here: Rambler 26 oz Bottle | YETI

    The Chug cap, which is out of stock at the moment, is a useful addition for some. Not the lowest price pount, but then again TESLA isn't either...

    Thank you very much

    20oz and 30oz Tumblers also fit great.

    My personal favorite is the tumbler from Drink Tanks. There is a great taper to them, and they fit VERY well in all cup holders I've used them in. Link is to amazon: https://goo.gl/pXjTV8

    We've been using insulated bottles from Kleen Kanteen. There are 16 oz. and 20 oz. the fit is perfect.

    Insulated Wide 16oz

    Specs say the Kleen Kanteen is 3" wide, while the Yeti is 3 & 3/4". I don't think both can fit perfectly :)

    My old water bottle is 3", but that's measuring it myself. I don't know exactly what the stated specs were.

    The new one I got is around 2.6". I'm looking for something around 2.9", which there are a few on Amazon

    Try a Zojirushi Stainless Steel Mug, there are multiple styles and many are 2.8 inch.

    21F7645E-2E39-4E96-B323-3C1618F23D13.jpeg Close enough I’d say


    Snug on the bottom so they don’t rattle.

    The Yeti 18 oz Bottle has an O.D. of 3.0" per spec, That measures fine in my Model "S" front cupholders.
