I ended up selling my 2001 Cobra because I liked my 2005 GT better. Just seemed more refined and easier to get in and out of. I also feel the pain of the cup holders. Canít tell from the picture, but the back one has a removable platform that lets you put a large drink in at a lower position that makes it less aggravating. Like yours, I had some peeling of the door panel inserts. I used Loctite Granite Grab to glue them back down. Theyíve held up for over a year. I also added a Hurst Competition Plus shifter because I like the look. Kind of stiff but definitely no slop in it. For me, the 2005-2009 have the best retro look. Enjoy the ride.
