2001 325ci coupe...car phone?!

Bought this sexy lady from a dude I went to high school with, after hot boxing the thing once or thrice, I noticed that I don't have a single goddamn cup holder in my car. But I do have what looks like a car phone, minus the phone itself, there's a snipped wire showing where it should've been. If it wasn't a car phone, then I haven't got a clue, but what I'm getting at is can I take it out and make my own cup holders?(pretty inexperienced here) Maybe with some epoxy or something, and any suggestions on making it blend w/the interior afterwards. Pictures are unavailable, cars in fl and I'm stationed at ft sill for another 3 months.

Tough to say without pictures but the e46 console can take a car phone adaptor, euro tray storage box, or cupholders. So yes, you can get cupholders but if you have a manual you may not like them.

To install a cupholder, you'll need this too:
